INEXPRESSIBLE HEIGHTS OF GLORY

During the writing of this book, a certain thought crossed my mind and I often hesitated to document it. I felt sad that I had not begun to enjoy the Gospel of St. John earlier on in my life. Had I done so, I would have spent the rest of my days soaring in the glories that this Gospel offers. These are glories that are hard to communicate in any human language.
As I studied the Gospel of St. John, I came to understand the meaning of what Origen, meant when he wrote his meditations and sermons on this Gospel. He stated that he believed he could not complete his interpretation of St. John until he had passed into heaven. Only there would he be able to complete that task! Indeed, I feel that no one can achieve a full understanding of the depths of St. John’s writing; and that all would be revealed only as we meet with our glorified Savior and as we partake in His heavenly glory. Only then will we comprehend the amazing implications of this Gospel, and in a way that transcends all that can be said here.
May the Holy Spirit carry every soul into God’s divine embrace. May He enlighten the inner vision so that the soul may enjoy all the divine glory and understanding that our amazing Lord wishes to offer to us. Consequently, we will be ablaze with divine love and longingly seek to meet with our Savior.
