Father Stalla explains more about the consecration commitment:
“As a young man marries a young woman, your Maker shall marry you; and as a bridegroom rejoices in his bride, so shall your God rejoice in you.” – Isaiah 62:5
Reflection from St. Bernard in The Cantata of Love, a Verse by Verse Reading of The Song of Songs, page 346
“I have shown to you that any soul, even laden with sins, captive of its vices, held by its pleasures, imprisoned in its exile, locked up in its body, nailed to its worries, distracted by its concerns, frozen by its fears, struck by manifold sufferings, going from error to error, eaten up by anxiety, ravaged by suspicion and, lastly, according to the prophet, a stranger in a foreign land. . . , every soul, I say, in spite of its damnation and despair, can still find in itself reasons not only to hope for forgiveness and mercy but even to aspire to the wedding feast of the Word: as long as it does not fear to sign a covenant with God, and to place itself with him under the yoke of love. . . . For the Bridegroom is not only a lover: he is Love. You will say: yes, but is he not also honor? Some affirm this; as to myself, I never read anything of that kind. I have read that God is Love.”
“For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed, says the Lord, who has compassion on you” – Isaiah 54:10
The Bridegroom is coming this time as the Bridegroom of each unique unrepeatable deeply cherished soul… The Chosen people were waiting for the Bridegroom of Yahweh to come and save Israel… in our time He comes in a deeply personal and intimate way… to heal our wounded hearts, to restore the purity and sanctity of our hearts and minds and bodies that have been defiled and desecrated by satan’s diabolical distortions of love, sex, and marriage… the enemy has attacked each soul on a deeply personal and intimate level and thus his destruction has insidiously infected the culture, the Church, the world… and so the Bridegroom comes to each soul in just such a deeply personal and intimate encounter… and soon His incomprehensible beautiful spousal love will pour out of all of the hearts He touches and like a flood of life-giving cleansing Water the desert world will come alive and bloom with flowers of dignity, grace, and mercy.
Say “Yes!” to Christ the Bridegroom of your soul!
Choose Him as He has chosen you and set you as a seal on His Heart.
