Many Facets

Greetings and blessings from Beautiful Minnesota!  The fall colors these beginning October days are simply spectacular!  In fact, I feel called not to be sitting at the computer!  I do want to stay in touch with you, however, in spite of my weeks of absence, so here I am.  What do you call this:  the tension of inside/outside, of breathing out and taking in?  All of life seems characterized by this, as Fr. Timothy Radcliffe recently described – even love itself.  Love’s dimensions need to be both intimacy and allowing the beloved his/her own space.  Life is never one-dimensional.  So I struggle with blogging.

This brings me to my heart’s desire.  St. Paul says it:  I want to know the height and the depth of Christ, the Word of God – and the length and width of Christ’s Presence and Meaning in life.  It is something of which I have no control, and so I pray for it, this experience of the multi-dimensional richness of relationship in Christ.
