I am moved to share after reading Ambrose’s reflection. . .
A long time ago, I too heard the question:
Do you love me, Jo?
I heard it, and I remember shedding lots of tears. . .
Indeed, it has taken years of struggling and even now I dare say
For it is not at all easy to love our Lord the way He loves us
Too weak and too frail
Too calculating regarding the consequences we cannot know
Not enough trust and not enough confidence
Are we fools or weaklings . . .
I have not the answer but I dare say
I love our Lord the way I do and the way I desire
Always with His grace
For apart from Him, no one can do anything
Yes, my Lord and my God, you know it all!
You know that Ambrose and I and so many others love you!
Help us so we can love you even more deeply. . .
