Earth on Fire

In today's Gospel we hear Jesus cry out  for our love and faithfulness:

“I have come to set the earth on fire,
and how I wish it were already blazing!

Saint Paul seems to understand the desire of the Lord. He prays that we may understand 

what is the breadth and length and height and depth,
and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge,
(and) be filled with all the fullness of God.
