"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

A Meme



Cathy tagged me for a meme - the "Why I love Jesus" meme.  These are the rules:
.
* Share five things you love about Jesus/or why you love Jesus.

* Tag five other bloggers.

* Those tagged will provide a link in the comments section here so others can read them.
.
Five things I love about Jesus?
.
The first thought that came to mind was his 5 Holy Wounds... one could write a spiritual teatise on that, but I think there are already writings from the saints on the subject.
.
Why I love Jesus?
.
This is something entirely different, but it is very simple:
.
He first loved me.
He drew me to himself,
when I was mired in sin.
He loved me
and revealed himself to me.
.
That's it.
.
I tag Thom, Owen, Pablo, Joe Defend Us In Battle, Tom in Vegas.

  5. You should write again about the 5 Holy Wounds. They scare me. But, I need to be scared.
