Dear lovely Roses,
What stirs your love for Jesus? Perhaps it is reading of His healing miracles, praying with Psalms of praise, singing of His love, gazing upon sacred art, praying the Rosary and contemplating His life with Mother Mary, or maybe just sitting silently letting Him gaze upon you. Probably, what kindles the fire of your love changes from day to day or season to season.
This teaching of St. Teresa has given my heart and mind such freedom in prayer! My prayer is no longer about what I “should do” or even what is the “right thing” to do. It is about my heart and my Jesus’ Heart; it is about our spousal relationship; it is an intimate dialogue of love sometimes with words, sometimes with music and sometimes with silence. My prayer is as unique as my heart is unique. This prayer that is a stirring of mutual love, an intimate dialogue, a duet of hearts, this is spousal prayer and this is the prayer Christ the Divine Bridegroom desires to enter into with each of us.
Together in His Heart,
