It seems to me that nothing better expresses the love in God’s heart than the Eucharist: it is union, consummation. He is in us, we in Him, and isn’t that Heaven on earth? He whom the blessed contemplate in light and we adore in faith is really the same One.
Elizabeth of the Trinity
Julian of Norwich has always been my go-to wisdom figure when things are uncertain and pain-filled. She is utterly realistic here. We will come across times in our life when the ground is shifting and the storm blurs the way forward. Jesus himself walked resolutely through the darkness of Calvary. The important word is “through.” Because we are always and forever held in the precious love of God for us, in his strong yet tender embrace, and our walking forward is always a walking through to resurrection. Trust that, my friend.
The amazing thing about the dawn is that we get to begin again.
Each new sunrise announces a gift to be opened.
Believe in God like you believe in the sunrise. Not because you can see it, but because you can see all it touches.
Even before sunrise, I pray for your help, and I put my hope in what you have said.
