Dying To Self


“I used to approach Jesus frequently saying,dying to self6 ‘What do you wish from me?’ He would reply, ‘that you die to yourself, that you rise above your worldly interests; die to everything, even to those affections that seem to be holy, live at a level where life’s contradictions don’t disturb you, where attentions don’t flatter you. Seek only God and His interests.’”

      -Venerable Julia Navarrete Guerrero
