In the darkness may we be enthralled by the tenderness of God

Psalm 39 assures us that even in the darkest places, the infinite love of God is there for us and for all- no exceptions.

Gregory Boyle SJ writes : "There is a longing in us all to be God-enthralled. So enthralled that to those hunkered down in their disgrace, in the shadow of death, we become transparent messengers of God's own tender mercy. We want to be seized by that same tenderness, we want to bear the largeness of God." (Tattoos on the Heart, p. 45)
