and soothes the frantic heart;

as we wait in uncertainty.

Now that we can no longer meet Christ at church or in our friends
here are some quotes to help. God is the centre of our being.
"You were here all along, and I never knew it." Genesis 28: 16.
"The mystery of Christ is within you - our hope of glory." Colossians 1:27.
My deepest me is God". Catherine of Genoa.
"Late have I loved you. Beauty so very ancient and so ever new. Late have I loved you. You were within but I was without."
All above quotes collected very lazily from Richard Rohr's book - Immortal Diamond.(Aileen)
