The heart is the dwelling–place where I am, where I live…the place “to which I withdraw.” The heart is our hidden center, beyond the grasp of our reason and of others…The heart is the place of decision, deeper than our psychic drives. It is the place of truth, where we choose life or death.
“…only the Spirit of God can fathom the human heart and know it fully.”
— Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraph 2563
Heart, I need you to keep beating, to keep feeling, to keep hoping, to keep deciding for me in spite of my mind’s loud complaints.
I dedicate this post to my blogging friend Robert who suffered a heart attack earlier this week.
Grace and peace to you…
