the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein compared coming to faith and living by faith to falling in love. Falling in live with a person is a unique subjective experience. Lovers can be often love struck, sometimes lost for words, in each others presence and they can find it hard to articulate or express how they feel. similarly, over for god has its roots, its foundation, in the gift of grace, revelation and truth. We give our lives to God because in Christ he shows us and   reveals ipse nitutua est love it itself a kind of knowledge possessed of its own logic.

Lord God we thank you for revealing your love in the life of Jesus, in the mystery of the Virgin birth, God becoming man, in the moment of Jesus dying on the cross and in rising from the dead. Amen.
