..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

The Bliss of Christ

"Our natural will is to have God, and
the good will of God is to have us, and
we may never cease willing or longing
for God until we have him in the fullness
of joy. Christ will never have his full
bliss in us until we have our full bliss
in him."
- Julian of Norwich
