March 1, 2011. Come and You Will See: Experiencing the
Lasting Love of Christ by Fr Héctor Guerra, LC, and
Fr Juan Pablo Ledesma, LC, is an exploration of what
exactly it means to love God.
Available through the Regnum Christi
Resource Center, the book frames the question of love for
God as a personal friendship with Christ that begins in
this life and continues into the next. Rich in theology
and in practical applications, the book begins by defining the
importance and nature of love in our lives, and then
focuses on how developing a deeper friendship with Christ is
the key to experiencing the fullness of God’s love and
loving him back with purity, depth, and totality.
On a practical
level, the book also explores some of the obstacles to
developing a stronger friendship with Christ, such as pride, immaturity,
mediocrity, and hardness of heart, not to mention the devil.
Finally, it offers some of the keys to continue growing
and building a strong love that can weather any storm.
