Flesh From My Flesh

The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.” Genesis 2:23

eucharist-1<

Yesterday just before receiving our Lord in Communion, "Bone from my bone, flesh from my flesh" came to mind. Is it good to think of Him in this way, as He is the New Adam and to understand He is the spouse of my soul? And I must love Him as He loves us in order to love my neighbor as He is asking of me? I have been pondering this since. We are called to return to our First Love. He is my First and my Last…

  1. you are indeed Mira in another incarnation – the mystic poet of India who said to her mother, i dreamt that the Lord came to me as my groom.

    • I wouldn’t say that but I will say, after reading your articles and the prayers she and the cobbler made, we share a deep lovein the One True God, Christ Jesus many things He was put to death for. Could it be the family became upset with her because she was praying to Jesus Christ and they changed the astory so not to bring shame? Your princess was an outcast for her love, as I am and all who love Christ are. Because He cut across the grain of the world and died for truth, the same truth we hope to die for because of our Lord for Him who is love itself. She may not have known His name, but I tell you with my entire heart, He is Jesus Christ. Peace to you my firend. Your Princess Saint and thew Cobbler both carried the same “Cross” fo rlove. May He bring us all together in Himself for all eternity. I pray in the greates name Jesus Christ. Amen – “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn “‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law–a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’ “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me.” Matthew 10 34-38

      • Mira of course was in love with her Krishna, in Hinduism he was the incarnation (Avatar) of the Universal Essence (God) born as a human to help the world in its hour of trial even as Jesus was – one may call it the son of god or Avatar, that is mere symantics and a different cultural way of looking at the same thing. No she may not even have been aware of Jesus as Christianity had yet to make headway in India – but what difference does it make – whatever name you give a rose, it smells as sweet. Mira was ostracized for going public at a time when women in the royal house were not meant to step out in public being in a veil. Thanks for your interest nevertheless.

      • 🙂 I believe she cried out in love and received love 🙂
