Episode 012: “The Sacred Romance” (3 of 3)

#12: “You have ravished my heart my sister, my bride, you have ravished my heart with one glance of your eyes” (Song of Songs 4:9)

God loves romance. He created it. Sunsets, flowers, music, a kiss…all His idea. God is a lover who calls you into eternal love. He pursues you to the ends of the earth seeking an intimacy with you that seems too good to be true. But that is exactly the Church’s astounding claim and proposal to the world!
