This book, accessible for those who may struggle to read for long or who can only be read short passages to at a time, arises out of a deep experience of God's love, which held us through decades of physical illness and profound disability.
25 years of intense suffering and isolation have led us on a long journey into the Heart of Love, which we call the Holy Way; the way of the disenfranchised, the broken, the sick, the dying, the alienated.
“Oh miraculous, miraculous, oh Holy Heart of Love" I have turned the last page....I have been blessed every day, feeling privileged to share in this journey into the Heart of Love. This book has entwined itself around my heart, soul & mind, opening me to greater compassion, greater faith, greater patience, as I reflect on my role as carer & now, increasingly poorly myself, I look into my earthly future with chronic illness with a new understanding. Jesus - The Way, The Truth & The Life is with us - has walked the dusty road to the humiliation & agony of the Cross, bearing our unbearable burdens Himself. Thank you, Holy Way. xxx”
“To say that “Living in the Heart of Love” is about indescribable suffering would be accurate, but incomplete. It is about much more. So often, in life, we ask the crucial question “Why?” While there have been countless occasions on which this is the correct question, on others the more appropriate question is “How?” Rather than ask God, the Universe or loved ones “Why me?”, “Living in the Heart of Love” asks “How can I unite what I am enduring to the suffering of Christ?” or “How can I offer my pain, as did Christ, for those in desperate need?” This is why I sincerely believe, with every fibre of my heart, that when Linda or Greg pray for others that prayer is powerful indeed, because it imitates what Christ did. ”
To take on a journey like this, three things are necessary: the ability to embrace uncertainty, the courage to hold on, the desire to grow – in other words, Faith, Hope and Love.
