Does your spouse make you feel like God is real?
Mine does. When I consider his integrity, his character, his commitment to all that is good, it is not a leap to believe there is a force much greater than he is, who inspired all that he is.
I remember attending my parents' 50th wedding anniversary Mass 20 years ago and reflecting, during the Eucharistic prayers, on how much the description of Jesus sounded like Dug. It is the same all loving, all committed spirit.
I also remember a sermon once in which the minister told the husbands present that they are very likely the face of Jesus to their wives. What a responsibility.
One of the deepest feminine pleasures is when a man stands full, present, and unreactive in the midst of his woman's emotional storms. When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. -- David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man
