Revelation of Love

Today's video is rather interesting, as a conversation between three brothers from the Society of St. John the Evangelist.  It's a bit longer (it's Sunday - hopefully you're not working and you have time for a 5 minute video) than usual, but here are men who have dedicated their lives to God, asking questions and expressing the doubts, vulnerabilites, fears and questions that many of us have at times in our lives.

So in addition to the question they pose to you:  Can you allow yourself to be vulnerable and be embraced?, let's also ask:

Have there been times when you have felt wrapped in God's love? 

Have there been times when, perhaps after the fact rather than in the midst, you have felt God's love and guidance through some pretty tough times?

Have there been times when you've experienced the "tough love" God provides to help us learn something (i.e., the brick thrown when you're going too fast to pay attention)?  What were you doing, and what did you learn?

Are there times when you feel unloveable, and therefore unable to feel the love of God surrounding you?  What do you do to get out of that situation?
