🙏 Questions for reflection

  • In which ways is God's will present in my life? How does it shape my thoughts, my actions...?
  • How does God see me? What kind of person is he calling me to be? What are the 'masks' concealing who I really am?
  • What are the moments in my life when I most need God's grace? What are the weaknesses where his strength can be manifested?


📚 Further reading

  • Thomas Merton, Seeds of Contemplation. A favourite theme of this 20th-century Cistercian monk is how the spiritual life leads us to become our true selves, written in a simple yet honest and moving style.
  • St Augustine, The Confessions. This spiritual classic illustrates like no other the way in which God has prepared a unique path for each of us to the final encounter with Him.

Take a moment to treasure up all these things and ponder them in your heart (cf Luke 2,19)

Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone. Col 4:6
