Daily Meditation – No Moment is Trivial

Precious moment, how small in the eyes of my head and how great in those of my heart, the means whereby I receive small things from the Father who reigns in heaven! Everything that falls from there is very excellent, everything bears the mark of its maker

- The Sacrament of the Present Moment by Jean-Pierre de Caussade

Daily Meditation – No risk with God 

[The following is part ten 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:

“For what can ultimately trouble the soul that accepts every moment of every day as a gift from the hands of God and strives always to do his will? ‘If God is for us, who can stand against us?’  Nothing, not even death, can separate us from God. Nothing can touch us that does not come from his hand, nothing can trouble us because all things come from his hand. Is this too simple, or are we just afraid really to believe it, to accept it fully and in every detail of our lives, to yield ourselves up to it in total commitment? This is the ultimate question of faith, and each must answer it for himself in the quiet of his heart and the depths of his soul. But to answer it in the affirmative is to know a peace, to discover a meaning to life that surpasses all understanding.”

p. 201-202, He Leadeth Me, By Father Walter J. Ciszek, S.J.

Daily Meditation – A purpose for each moment 

[The following is part nine 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:

“…every moment of our life has a purpose, that every action of ours, no matter how dull or routine or trivial it may seem in itself, has a dignity and a worth beyond human understanding. No man’s life is insignificant in God’s sight, nor are his works insignificant – no matter what the world or his neighbors or family or friends may think of them. Yet what a terrible responsibility is here. For it means that no moment can be wasted, no opportunity missed, since each has a purpose in man’s life, each has a purpose in God’s plan. Think of your day, today or yesterday. Think of the work you did, the people you met, moment by moment. What did it mean to you – and what might it have meant for God.”

p. 201, He Leadeth Me, By Father Walter J. Ciszek, S.J.

Daily Meditation – Resting with God 

[The following is part eight 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:

In ministering to the needs of various individuals, Fr. Ciszek would convey that “there was a meaning to man and his existence here on earth that went beyond the purely human and material. It wasn’t a matter of telling them that I had all the answers and they had all the questions and problems; I was trying to show that the doubts and the longings expressed, the inner stirrings of their hearts and souls, came from a spirit in man that was natural but more than material. I echoed St. Augustine’s saying that man’s heart was made for God alone and it is restless until it comes to rest in him.”

p. 196, He Leadeth Me, By Father Walter J. Ciszek, S.J.
