They live in rapture

10 February 2022

Those who experience Christ become one with him, with his Church. They live in exultation. Their life is different from that of other people. It’s joy, light, elation, rapture. This is the life of the Church, the life of the Gospel, the Kingdom of God. ‘The Kingdom of God is within you’ (Luke17, 21). Christ comes within us and we’re in him. And it’s like what happens with a piece of iron. If you put it into a hot fire, it glows bright and light; outside the fire it goes back to dark, black iron.
