Divine Love

Recently a friend sent us these words by Ruth Burrows, OCD. And we were reminded once again that in Jesus we see God's deep desire to be ordinary. We may encounter Him moment by moment in what is commonplace.

Divine love meets us in the real world and nowhere else: in this moment; in this circumstance, painful and humiliating though it may be; in this person; in the daily unexciting round of seeming trivialities which afford no measure of self-glorification. Divine love meets us here in our flawed, suffering human condition and nowhere else.
