Addressing Jesus

        Suppose you see Jesus today ~ how would you address him?  
        I love the response of Thomas when he finally saw the resurrected Jesus: "My Lord and my God."  Then Peter said to the Lord: "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God."  I am also deeply moved when I hear the refrain sung in the song You Are My God: "For you are my God.  You alone are my joy; defend me, O Lord."  The melody is beautiful as well.  It just got into my mind this morning that should I see Jesus, I would say to him: "You are the Word of Life."
