“In my deepest wounds ….”

The Sacrament of Reconciliation

The Sacrament of Reconciliation

It goes beyond words when you reach a point in the spiritual life when you hear an eternal truth afresh to the heart. The opening line of this post comes from Saint Augustine’s Confessions. Yesterday, when I heard this at the Broken Retreat, I couldn’t help but be moved by the Holy Spirit. This little quote in its entirety is as follows:

In my deepest wound I saw your glory and it dazzled me.”

God does not look at our sins and treats it like a check list of all these unlovable things that does not merit heaven in the life to come. God is not obsessed with our sins, God is obsessed with us and this is why sin is the problem. It constrains the Lover to pursue the Beloved (YOU). We get so caught up that our brokenness makes us unlovable. Actually, that is the very reason why we are so lovable. The Creator stoops towards the earth, to walk with us, to dwell with us, and to save us from our own sins and to call us to the divine light. How can we not be dazzled by the God who loves us in the brokenness that we are in!
