[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…”
