[The following is part four 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:
“The answer lies in understanding that it is these things - and these things alone, here and now, at this moment – that truly constitute the will of God. The challenge lies in learning to accept this truth and act upon it, every moment of every day. The trouble is that like all great truths it seems too simple. It is there before our noses all the time, while we look elsewhere for subtle answers. It bears the hallmark of all divine truths, simplicity, and yet it is precisely because it seems so simple that we are prone to overlook it or ignore it in our daily lives.”
