CQOD: 02/06/07 -- Eckhart: turned away from God?

Christian Quotation of the Day

February 6, 2007
Commemoration of Martyrs of Japan, 1597
    Jesus answered him, "If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him."
    -- John 14:23 (ESV)

    The man who will and can go to our Lord in all freedom... must be such that his love for the Sacrament and for our Lord grows more and more by this [Holy Communion], and that the reverence is not diminished by frequently approaching it. For often what is one man’s life may be another’s death. Therefore you should observe yourself, whether your love for God is growing and your reverence is not destroyed. Then, the more frequently you go to the Sacrament, the better you will become, and the better and more profitable it will be. And therefore be not turned away from your God by words and sermons.
    ... Meister Eckhart (1260?-1327?), Spiritual Instructions

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I seek You in communion.
