"Let yourselves be charmed by Christ the Infinite, who appeared among you in visible and imitable form. Let yourselves be attracted by his example, which has changed the history of the world and directed it toward an exhilarating goal. Let yourselves be loved by the love of the Holy Spirit, who wishes to turn you away from worldly things to begin in you the life of the new self, created in God's way in righteousness and true holiness. (cf. Ephesians 4:24) Fall in love with Jesus Christ, to live his very life, so that our world may have life in the light of the gospel."
-Pope John Paul II
(Ah! Dear friends! I miss you and the bloggie world! I intended to take only a week or two off around the holidays, and now it's been almost a month. I've been working and training and praying and healing and keeping up with this new schedule...now I just need to set aside some writing time. Thank you for your thoughts and emails and such. I pray for you...the Body of Christ keeps connected even without the internet. ;) Peace, friends, and see you soon! -Laura)
