The living Spirit
Remember that you are called to other things besides these earthly and material goods, which threaten to divert you from the essential.
God is found in the gentle breeze perceived by Elijah. The senses that find God are the ones St Ignatius called spiritual senses …
Father, you created each one of us in your own image. / Yet yours is a world made glorious by its rich diversity. / This we sometimes misunderstand, sometimes fear.
Those periods of dryness [in prayer] can be when God is closest to us and when we grow the most. In those times, our prayer is motivated by pure love, and we do not come to God for the comfort we receive.
God of compassion, you await the sinner’s return and spread a feast to welcome home the lost.
All who want to unite with love must look for it reverently and faithfully. They must desire it so much that they keep to the road and surmount all obstacles before they find it.
[All] of us, believers in Christ, have been called to proclaim the mighty works of God. Beyond the differences which still separate us, we recognise with joy that at the origin of our Christian life there is always a call from God himself.
The year struggles with its own blackness.
