**How dose(is) the view of a mystical relationship with our Lord Jesus differ between that of the Sisters & Brothers??? **
I have asked this question of a few Brothers I run into occasionally with various answers & explanations. As such, I am sure, should be the case as everyone’s relationship with our Lord is different & at varying stages of development.
However I am seeking a more general answer. To clarify; More often than not, Sisters, of any order, I have found, if asked, will discuss a relationship with Jesus as their Bridegroom. Them, their self’s, the Bride of Christ. If pressed often they will begin to literally gush over their groom & eventually reach a point of “shyness/meekness” about their relationship, as a newly married couple wood when conversation with friends turned to things of an intimate nature between the new couple. This is truly a humbling & truly amazing experience if ever privileged to witness.
This is not, in general, the case with Brothers (THAT I HAVE MEET, going off experience). The brothers tend to be more intellectually expressive about their relationship, rather than as a courtship, often the relationship is seen as mystically father & son. And any “gushing” seems to be internalized.
**Is this always the case? How often dose it differ? **
Mystical speaking, I am aware, we are all, male & female, the Bride of Christ our Lord. We are also ALL Sons or daughters of the Father. **Sisters are encouraged to have both a relationship with The Father as a Daughter & as the bride of Christ. Can not a man have both a relationship with The Father as a Son & with our Lord the Bridegroom? ** Our is it an unwritten rule Brothers will not discuss a relationship between Jesus as the bridegroom because of the SSA issues of late? If that's the case I see it as a grave discourse, unless one had the penitence of actually being effect by SSA, of coarse. The vast majority do not have those worries though.
well hope this, my first thread, is a good one :shrug:
Looking forward to discussions and hope they can stay on topic. If i put this in wrong section please Move & shoot me a line as where it went as I may learn from my mistake.
May Our Lord Bless & keep You :signofcross:
