He Comes as a Conversant Guest

Cardinal Journet with seminarians

God comes as a guest asking us to admit him, and he converses with us if we really desire it. It is no longer a simple relation of creature with Creator, servant with master, but now of friend with friend… When anyone is in the state of grace, there is a dialogue, conversation, of friend with friend.
Charles Cardinal Journet (1891
1975)
