Use your imagination in verse 2 of today’s reading: “I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.” Feel the joy, the love and the beauty of St. John’s vision. It’s similar to the vision that Jacob had in our Saturday reading a few weeks ago, when Jacob saw a ladder connecting heaven and earth.
As you pray, let St. John’s vision joining heaven and earth connect you with heaven right now. Whenever we love, we are connected to heaven.
Thursdays are dedicated to the letters of Paul, other letters,
the Book of Acts, and the Book of Revelation.
