Next to the Blessed Sacrament itself,
your neighbour is the holiest object presented to your senses…
for in him also Christ ‘vere latitat’* – the glorifier and the glorified,
Glory Himself, is truly hidden.”
C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory
(*the true Christ hides in your neighbor)
(Gulf of Mexico / Rosemary Beach / Julie Cook / 2018)
“I will glory not because I am righteous, but because I am redeemed;
I will glory not because I am free from sins, but because my sins are forgiven me.
I will not glory because I have done good nor because someone has done good to me,
but because Christ is my advocate with the Father and because the blood of Christ
has been shed for me.”
Amen Julie. 🙂
Beautiful, dear Julie!! And such an excellent reminder of two greatest commandments….to love God with all our hearts, and our neighbors as ourselves! ❤ and huge hugs!
