No other reality so liberates us, so fills us with pleasure, so causes love to well up from inside. And in so doing it frees us from every other terrible master we so easily find ourselves following.
And the bride of Christ will not have a begrudging betrothal to a man she barely knows or distractedly loves.
She shall be obsessed and possessed. Her gaze will only be upon the one who has infinite beauty and worth. The one who calls himself the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and End.
To love and be loved. She shall require nothing more and nothing less.
To desire and be desired. And in this place she shall know what it means to be alive and to be free.
Jesus. He is and shall be. Our magnificent obsession.
