The Lord’s Goodness – Two Souls, One Heart

Today, at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, I was praying to express my faith in the Lord’s real Presence in the Eucharist there. I was met with the inaudible response, “Come. I give you peace and pardon” and I saw in my mind an image of Him standing like a giant, extending His hand to me, smiling.

Thereafter, before processing to receive Him in the Eucharist, I heard a call to divine marriage, something I do not understand well yet. I state “divine” because that is the only way it can be known – it must be clearly discerned from what we understand in human marriage. But, it was given to me to know that this marriage was so strong and intimate that it would be as if I had the Sacred Heart of Jesus as my very own heart – two souls, yet one heart, human and divine. I don’t understand this fully, but I believe that it is very good.

So, when we receive the Lord faithfully in the Eucharist, perhaps He is giving us His own heart and desiring that we accept it to replace our own injured, fallen stony hearts. This is part of our call to divine marriage, becoming one in Goodness. For as the divine intention is written:

A new heart I will give you, and a new spirit I will put within you; and I will remove from your body the heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will put my spirit within you, and make you follow my statutes and be careful to observe my ordinances. Then you shall live in the land that I gave to your ancestors; and you shall be my people, and I will be your God. [Ezekiel 36:26-28]

  1. Amen! Thanks for this morning’s inspiration to seek marriage with Our Father. I bid you peace from my heart to yours; in Christ and God as we each seek our partner In The Divine.

    Love in Spirit.

      No, I don’t think God wants you to think of marriage with that Person, else He would not reveal Himself as your Father. But, a lasting marriage of sorts is possible with the the Divinity through the Holy Spirit since it is the Holy Spirit, the giver of Life, who overshadowed Mary for the conception of Jesus Christ. Also, do not think of this marriage in human terms at all.

  2. Thank you for your care in spirit and in wellness of our soul.

    You are well received. In gratitude, I thank you for clearer sight.

    It is such a blessing to read your words.

    Peace and good will.
