The Poco a Poco Podcast with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal

Nov 23, 2022

Jesus not only loves us—he thirsts for us.

Why does He say "I thirst"? What does it mean? It's something so hard to explain in words. I thirst is something much deeper than Jesus just saying, "I love you". 

Mother Teresa tells us how much love Jesus has for each of us—beyond all that we can imagine. 

In her words "Not only He loves you, even more, He longs for you. He misses you when you don't come close. He thirsts for you. He loves you always, even when you don't feel worthy".

This fourth and last part of this series talks about Jesus's experience of us and our first step to begin to know who He wants to be for us, or who Jesus wants us to be for Him.
