Being in Love With God

Luke 1:39-45 

“To journey into God is to become one in love with God, to become crucified in love, like Christ, whose selfless gift of love shows us the capacity of the human person to love for the sake of new life.” Ilia Delio, The Emergent Christ

Last night I heard one story after another of pain–severe loneliness and regret–one person’s turned forty one yesterday–I have known him for 18 years. He was a speed freak, now he is an alcoholic, he has lived on the streets since he was 14. His life is full of regrets. He is not often pleasant, nor is he very pretty.  The call of Jesus is to love, to listen, to walk with this guy, and with each other. Jesus “shows us the capacity of the human person to love for the sake of new life,” it simply takes our time, our energy to walk with another. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
