RIP Leonard Cohen, one of our elder brothers in faith, as Pope St. John Paul II referred to the Jewish faithful.

Leonard Cohen had a profound respect for Jesus and for Christians.  Here is a thought he expressed about the Peace of Christ:


“As I understand it, into the heart of every Christian, Christ comes, and Christ goes. When, by his Grace, the landscape of the heart becomes vast and deep and limitless, then Christ makes His abode in that graceful heart, and His Will prevails. The experience is recognized as Peace. In the absence of this experience much activity arises, divisions of every sort. Outside of the organizational enterprise, which some applaud and some mistrust, stands the figure of Jesus, nailed to a human predicament, summoning the heart to comprehend its own suffering by dissolving itself in a radical confession of hospitality.”
