By returning to our “heart” we find our deepest center by consciously opening up to the loving presence of the triune God dwelling within us. Without such an “aloneness” within our heart, we will never know our true identity which has from all eternity been linked together in the mind of the heavenly Father with his Logos-made-flesh, Jesus Christ.” ~ Rev. George Maloney S.J., Prayer of the Heart: The Contemplative Tradition of the Christian East
Your identity existed forever in the mind of the Father. What an incredible statement on our dignity, origin and destiny.
