Volume Eight, letter from Anne
Dear lay apostles,
Greetings of love and peace and also great gratitude.
First, thanks to anyone who is being moved to help defray the costs of printing Volume 8. As usual, we could not do any of this without you. We would be delayed. With your help, we are moving along nicely.
Lay apostles, as a group, I feel we have been well and truly blessed to participate in bringing the Volumes into the Church. We at DFOT are profoundly grateful to anyone who has shared this privilege, in whatever way, even briefly. Together we have done something important and while our work remains unfinished, we should rejoice that all ten volumes will now be available. This feels like a big thing and a very good thing.
Remember that this volume was recorded in 2004. Below we have included an entry.
You will see that these recorded experiences make Volume 8 different from the other Volumes. Volume 8 is called Resting in the Heart of the Saviour because in Volume 8 the Lord allows us a glimpse into how He views and experiences certain realities in our time. This is helpful for us. It should spark in us peace and conviction about our presence in the Church and in the world. It should also spark in us peace and conviction about our role in our families and parishes. The well prepared lay apostle views all with a keen interest in finding the Lord’s will in each day.
What became very clear to me during these experiences is that the Lord remains with us in each day, in each decision and in each event in our lives, happy or sad. He hopes that we will make good choices and He needs us to make good choices based on what He sees as the big picture. This means we have to be interested in Him each day. Lay apostles, let us keep our commitment to daily silence because only in silence will we be able to remain connected in the Returning King and His will.
With great love,
Anne, a lay apostle
