Friday Thoughts: because you love Him


Ribalta, “Christ Embracing St. Bernard” (1625-27), detail

Jesus Christ Is Real.

Do not be afraid to feel His presence.

Ask to see His wounds, not for proof, but because you love Him.

Ask to see so that His wounds may become the womb, the womb from which you may be truly born again.

No, do not fear. Do not doubt. Do not explain it away. Do not shudder when His hand lands upon your shoulder.

No, lean into Him.

Place your head against His chest and be still, and know that He is God.

Hear His Heart
Feel His Breath
Rest in His Embrace

Jesus Christ Is Oh So Very Real!
