Inner Freedom

We are not just promised freedom -
we have it already.
It is not a present in the future -
it has been given to us.
It is not simply been predicted -
it is present here and now.
For with the fullness of time
came the fullness of God.

Where else does such great love exist?
Today we can understand
the depth of God’s concern for us.
Today we can experience
what God thinks of us.
( St. Bernard of Clairvaux: d.1153)
