Letters from a Pastor to His People- July 21, 2019
A wise person once told me that true love doesn't consist in saying 'I love you'. Think about when you're with your spouse, or your brother or sister, or your best friend. When you're watching TV together, or fishing together, or having dinner, you may be sitting in silence, but love is being expressed. Love is a reception of the other person's presence. That is the ultimate goal for prayer. That is what we call contemplation, and that's the point I want to make from the Martha-Mary Gospel.
