In our Advent blog posts we will reflect on how the
Brothers and Sisters who live busy working lives
make their journey within the Society of Prayer.
But first this reflection is offered to our members who live
a Hermitage style life, or for those who will desire such a path
in the future.
In the end I will give you what you desire so much.
However much some attempted to prevent this they could not because this
came from me.
The goodness of God will flow out from within you and surround you.
Then we will be along together, and see and enjoy each other forever.
I am your lasting home because you came from me, and I made you for myself.
I became a man for you that you could become God with me.
Anything less than this would not be to fulfill your eternal destiny in Me.
It would be to only become a small part of what I created you to be.
The communion of love has to be silently lived away from the gaze of men of this world to keep you safe.
It is my Divine Love that will draw you ever deeper, and still your restless heart.
This is the living water of life for all humanity .
Once you have tasted it we will forever thirst to drink more.
I will lead you to stand on top of the mountain of your dreams.
You will stand there fully in the light.
Truths with depths beyond all your dreams will be revealed to you.
You will feed from this source and hunger no more.
You will also be taken into the depths of the earth.
The darkness of the Evil one will totally surround you.
You will learn what it truly means to cry out to Me for mercy.
And in that moment I will raise you up to the heights again.
Finally you will be left alone in prayer at the foot of the Holy Cross for all men and women.
You will spend many hours alone there.
This will be the moments all your moments are preparing you for in the solitude.
In those hours of transformation everything you have known in the world will pass away.
One by one all the people you have known will leave you to be alone.
You will be completely alone in your solitude.
The desires of your heart will have been fulfilled.
Then you will be seen no more because I will come and take you.
