Daily Meditation - Becoming True

Our eyes should be on God alone, and with BOUNDLESS confidence. When God desires to take something from our hands, it is invariably because God desires that we become more truly ourselves. God is more faithful to us, than we are to ourselves.

"I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly" (Jn 10:10).

God Who Won't Let Go - by Peter G. Van Breemen

Daily Meditation – Reflect, Act, Reflect

The examen as advocated by St. Ignatius guides us to a reflection on our experiences, actions, and future. As “contemplatives in action” the examen helps us to consider God in all circumstances and thus follow the process of reflecting, action, reflection [repeat].  Go through your actions today with a mindset of finding God in all circumstances with periods of  brief reflection.

Daily Meditation – Knowing Jesus Through Prayer

Author William A. Barry, S.J. writes that “the best way to become like God is to grow in our knowledge and love of Jesus of Nazareth.” He goes on to state the following:

“…But I can know another person only if that person reveals himself or herself to me. So this desire to know Jesus more intimately is a desire for Jesus to reveal himself. If I have this desire, I must then take the time with the Gospels to let them stimulate my imagination so that Jesus can reveal himself, this is, reveal his dreams and hopes, his loves and hates, his hopes for me. As I engage in this kind of prayer, I will be surprised by what I discover about Jesus and thus about God, and myself. In the process, I will come to love Jesus and become more like him.”
