Reflection

Spirituality is an awareness that we long to reach a dimension beyond ourselves   It is a desire for the Incomprehensible Holy Mystery that we believe exists and is incontact with us in a loving relationship, the Mystery we call God. The deep longing buried in each of us pulls us toward a journey of search for this being.  As Christians, we base our spiritual journey in the life of Jesus who imaged this Incomprehensible Holy Mystery for us.

Prayer

My soul thirsts for the living God.

Action

I will recognize this desire in myself and follow where it leads me.

The desire to find God and to see God and to love God is the one thing that matters.
Thomas Merton

If the Creator stood before a million men with the light of a million lamps, only a few would truly see him because truth is already alive in their hearts. Truth can only be seen by those with truth in them. He who does not have Truth in his heart, will always be blind to it.”
Suzy Kassem

I suddenly saw that all the time it was not I who had been seeking God, but God who had been seeking me. I had made myself the centre of my own existence and had my back turned to God.
Bede Griffiths

You seek the heights of manhood when you seek the depths of God.
Edwin Louis Cole
