encounter the Lord

It is a good thing to allow ourselves to encounter the Lord at a deeply personal level. In a certain sense, we give the Lord permission to discipline us – the way loving parents discipline their sons and daughters. In a word, we allow the Lord in his love and mercy to remove from our lives whatever it is that prevents us from loving him and loving our neighbor with that pure, generous, virtuous self-giving love born of the Gospel.
