Dear Robert:

Thank you for this lovely thread. I hope all will share in their love for Christ (including theology buffs).

How can we have so much division when Christ dwells in each of us? When you are in deep prayer, don't you feel His presence so much that you feel like you will explode with love? When He answers a prayer that you have been waiting for such a long time and you notice that He could not have answered it at a more perfect time - His time. What joy.

When you contemplate His wounds, or His passion, don't you cry? When we see how some are so cold and does not care for Our Lord, that you fear they are lost, doesn't a sadness overcome you? I think: if I feel this profound sadness how could He feel? Him, who suffered so terribly, in such agony- how sad could He be?

When you visit someone sick and pray that the Lord will comfort them and feel this peace come all around.

So many experiences. So many graces does He give those who love Him. We need to love as He does. We here, all of us, love Our Lord so much... denominations do not matter... traditions do not matter... it is Him in us that matters and we must love Him at all times, we must love each other.

So, how did He touch you?

Yours in Christ,

Yours in Christ,
Maria 玛丽亚
