A description of the experience

Pere Teilhard de Chardin - Pensees

'Into thy hands I commend my spirit'.[Luke 23:46]

Into thy hands which broke and quickened the bread, which blessed and caressed little children, …... into the hands which were like our hands, the hands .. we know will …. reveal impulses filled with kindness and will always clasp us ever more closely, ever more jealously; into the gentle and mighty hands which can reach down into the very depth of the soul, the hands which fashion, which create, the hands through which flows out so great a love; into these hands it is comforting to surrender oneself, especially if one is suffering or afraid.  And there is both great happiness and great merit in so doing.
