PURE LOVE

Turgis
Lord, open to me the holy house that your love has prepared for me. Turgis.jpg

Note: The word bercail means sheepfold, so the meaning is perhaps more intimate, more like home than house; it is referring of course to the church, the Body of Christ.  Also there is a small printing error in the card ~ ma should have been m'a.
I love the card because it recalls the promises in John 10 that Jesus is both the shepherd and the door. He is the true shepherd to whom the doorkeeper opens the door (John 10:3). He is also the door itself (John 10:9).

Refuge of the dove.
I wish to hide you in my Heart, faithful soul, my good friend.
L. Turgis, Paris
God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.
Psalm 72:25

JESUS SPOUSE OF OUR SOULS
