YOU HAVE SEDUCED ME, LORD, & I HAVE LET MYSELF BE SEDUCED. YOU HAVE OVERPOWERED ME -- YOU WERE THE STRONGER!
'If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself, take up his cross, & follow me. Anyone who wants to save his life will lose it. Anyone who loses his life for my sake will find it.'
Let the Son of God seduce you--that's why he became a man: no better way to let someone know you love him than by dying on a cross for him! Being the beloved sure makes it easier to become the lover!
Authentic prayer supposes an open heart; the open mind discerns the eternal truth without being able to comprehend it, but lets the heart embrace it.
