03_Your Maker Is Your Husband, Cherished Series – Premium Content

Healing is the “science of love,” as Therese of Lisieux framed it. Because all healing comes from God, and God is relationship, we are healed in the measure that we know God intimately. We cannot love God when other things are prioritized over our time and attention. We cannot know Him if we are not consciously connecting to Him. We cannot expect to experience His unconditional love while holding a bag of conditions.  

How do we consciously connect to Him when we cannot hear or feel Him? As all the saints and sages assert, we LOVE in silent meditation and contemplation.  

As St. Augustine said, “the end of the Scriptures is love”: L-listen; O-observe; V-verbalize; E-entrust.

Thank you to my newest Friends of the Show Savana A; Julia J; Rhonda W; Maria L; Rosemary W; Jina S; Miranda Mc; and Maria H for loving and lifting me! Friends of the Show get all Premium Content and monthly meet-ups with Sonja: We’re studying the Book of Romans!

LOVE the Word® is a Bible study method based on Mary’s own practice: lectio without the Latin. Get the book based on Sonja’s method in the right margin, How to Pray Like Mary.  

L | Listen (Receive the Word via audio or video.)

O | Observe (Connect the passage to your life and recent events.)

Where do you need more healing? Where do you need discipline and fervency in prayer? What do you want to say to Him about that?

V | Verbalize (Pray about your thoughts and emotions.)

Tell Him. Tell Him everything in your heart right now. Take the risk, and ask Him to help you in your neediness.

Remembering that He loves you and that you are in His presence, talk to God about the particulars of your O – Observe step. You may want to write your reflections in your LOVE the Word® journal. Or, get a free journal page and guide in the right-hand margin.

E | Entrust (May it be done to me according to your word!)

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful. Enkindle in them the fire of Your love, and there shall be a new creation, and You shall renew the face of the earth. Amen. +
