Are not our hearts burning within us?

As Christians, we believe that we bear the image and likeness of God inside of us and that this is our deepest reality. We are made in God's image. However, we tend to picture this in a naive, romantic, and pious way. We imagine that somewhere inside us there is a beautiful icon of God stamped into our souls. That may be well, but God, as Scripture assures us, is more than an icon. God is fire - wild, infinite, ineffable, non-containable" -Fr. Ronald Rolheiser, OMI
