Thanks
Thank you for the posting John. I think that the word 'Allow' is a very important one! I have a feeling that Divine Life, Light and Fire is something that is given and not earned in any way - and yet there is a response which we have to make; an acceptance and a growth within it that is essential for it to retain its "hold" on us.

I remembered this morning Matthias Grunewald's extraordinary masterpiece of 1515: The Isenheim Altarpiece: The Resurrection:

One senses the 'otherness' of that golden radiance. It always sends shivers down my spine when I see it! Thank you for your kindness to me in helping me to understand a little, and for your prayers.
