Daily Meditation – Our Sole Purpose

[The following is part one of a ten part series of meditations based on insights and excerpts from the book He Leadeth Me by American Jesuit Father Walter Ciszek. The book details his faith journey as spent for 23 years in Soviet prisons and labor camps of Siberia. A truly amazing testament of faith and wisdom!!] Consider the following excerpt:

“our sole purpose… was to do the will of God. Not the will of God as we might wish it, or as we might have envisioned it, or as we thought it in our poor human wisdom it ought to be.  But rather the will of God as God envisioned it and revealed it to us each day in the created situations with which he presented us. His will for us was the twenty-four hours of each day: the people, the places, the circumstances he set before us in that time.  Those were the things God knew were important to him and to us at that moment, and those were the things upon which he wanted us to act…”

p. 38, He Leadeth Me, By Father Walter J. Ciszek, S.J.

Daily Meditation – Our Consent to Change

"God is more anxious to save us than we are to save ourselves, and he has given us all the means required to embrace him and abide in him unconditionally. Only one thing is needed: our consent, which must be re-ratified every day, through every choice we make."

-    from The Enduring Faith and Timeless Truths of Fulton Sheen

Daily Meditation – Standards and Values of Jesus

Consider the face of good and evil. Now, ask God to provide an intimate understanding of the way the Mind of Christ works. Furthermore, ask for an understanding of how those who have chosen only this way make decisions and value things.

- Adapted from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius

Daily Meditation – Created for a Purpose

“God has created me for some definite service; I have a mission… I am a link in a chain, a bond of connections between persons. He has not created me for naught.”
