It is all what we do

Friday, December 5th, 2014

It is all what do.  Not what we do out of worry, or fear, or angst.  Not what we do out of compulsion, or impulse.  But what we do out of conviction, out of a loving intention.  Even truth, even doctrine bows to that blessing.

“Life constitutes the Church, not doctrine; except in the measure that it becomes applicable to life.” (Secrets of Heaven 8152)

And yet we make church what it isn’t.  So often.  So easily.  And what church could be is a beautiful thing … a wonderful cultivation, celebration and application of that loving intent we know to be true, that gift of God that is God with us.  Immanuel.
