Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
Such a marvelous promise this is, to us who fret and worry and stew about so many earthly things, whatever they are: Fear not, little flock. It is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. All that remains is for us to believe it, and to live accordingly. And why should we not? Has he not already demonstrated what things he can do? He raised our Lord Jesus from the dead; and what's more, Jesus promised to return. But he didn't come in the first watch of the night, nor in the second. He was delayed, and for hundreds, thousands of years. Will he come in this the third watch? Blessed is that servant who is still waiting for the Bridegroom, and will open to him directly when he comes. And then the servant will sit and be served by the Lord who made and redeemed him. And even now, as a foretaste and first morsel of this feast, he feeds you here, in the Blessed Sacrament. Come, receive; and fear not. All that remains is to believe this and live accordingly.
