It's about Love

The season of Lent is about love.

We might be eager to reach the more obvious celebration of Easter, but we can well say that Lent — indeed the whole liturgical year — is about love, because the deepest meaning of our lives is God's love for us.

"And I saw full surely that before God made us He loved us; which love was never slacked, nor ever shall be. And in this love He hath done all His works; and in this love He hath made all things profitable to us; and in this love our life is everlasting. In our making we had beginning; but the love wherein He made us was in Him from without beginning: in which love we have our beginning. And all this shall we see in God, without end."

- Julian of Norwich, "Love Was Our Lord's Meaning,"
Revelations of Divine Love

New Cenacle Publication

That God May Be All in All: Christian Life and Sacred Paradox is the title of my new book, recently published.

We might truly wonder about this mysterious Biblical phrase: "that God may be all in all" (from 1 Corinthians 15). What does it mean for God to be all in all? Is this a promise only for the end of time, or does it contain a call to us now?

How are we to let ourselves be transformed in the God who is Unknown, yet at the same time is our most intimate Knowing? And what about the wondrous mystery that the God who is supremely Other longs for us to share the divine life in Christ?

I invite you to take a look on Amazon.com, which will let you view samples of the book.  Just click on the picture of the cover, and you will be taken there.
