What has a greater majesty than Truth? If we look for God in our feelings we mistake His character; He is instead to be found in the Truth: "Illuminatio mea." Fr. Reto, your description of the spiritual violence which wrenches one from his sin in confession...the drama of the squander of our souls and this sublime concept of Christ as the Desire, as the very force within our souls that loves God. Then, if we have this love, how can we doubt God is with us? I am deeply grateful to you and to all that has enabled you to share your Faith with us. You have given us riches.
We celebrate Christ the King but never related it to every single celebration of the Mass. Takes prudence to speak truth to power without being martyred. Addicted to Christ? Good zeal and bad zeal. More prudence needed. Charity must prevail. I agree God breaks through with His graces in the sacramental life. Tend more toward monastic worship but helps many to have more beautiful structures to praise God.
