God's "breathing" intimacy

Fourth Week of Lent - April 6, 2011

"Jesus said...'My father goes on working, and so do I'." (John 5)

The relationship between Jesus and the Father is so intimate it is like breathing. God offers this same intimacy to you and me, breathing love into us, and with this breath inspiring us to breathe love into others.  'It is good for you that I'm going, Jesus said, 'because if I go, I can send you my Spirit, my breath.


- Henri Nouwen
