Lovely little quote from Jean Corbon OP over at Ignatius Press.

On the other hand, if we do constantly renew this offering of our sinful hearts, let us not imagine that our New Covenant with Jesus will be a personal encounter pure and simple.

The book by Corbon is one of my favorites. It was a gift from a friend in Rome.

I made the mistake of attending the charismatic prayer meeting tonight. The man speaking said the exact opposite. It was mostly "me and Jesus." I am still discerning what to do about that group.

I have only been with the Abba Father Prayer Group a short time (and I haven’t attended that prayer meeting or today’s Life in the Spirit Seminar) but what I have heard from members so far sounds very similar to the reflections of Father Corbon and not similar to conversations I have had with Protestants indicating a relationship with “a personal savior?.

If I may be so bold, perhaps you might want to enter into a conversation with this group. I think that you and the group have much to learn from each other. This could be a teaching moment, which would lead these parishioners into a deeper understanding of our Faith.

actully the conversation has begun and is on-going.
