Reflection by Michael Dubruiel

Worshipping in spirit and truth, which is the kind of worship

that God seeks, involves an intimate dialogue, pouring out

our hearts and minds to God at all times. The late Bishop John

Sheets used to define the spiritual life as a “dialogic relationship,”

a fancy way of saying that we are in conversation with God at

every moment. Nothing we do is too trivial for God, nothing

beneath his notice.

If we truly believed this, our lives would be immediately

transformed. Gone forever would be the idea that God doesn’t

care what we do with our lives. There would be no area of our

lives that would be off-limits to God. Because when we worship

in spirit and truth, we realize that we live because God’s breath

is within us, and we live best when we acknowledge the source

of every breath we take.

Novena to St. Therese

The Novena to St. Therese continues.  It’s included in this pocket-sized book.

When Jesus ascended into heaven, he told his Apostles to stay where they were and to “wait for the gift” that the Father had promised: the Holy Spirit.  The Apostles did as the Lord commanded them. “They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers” (Acts 1:14). Nine days passed; then, they received the gift of the Holy spirit, as had been promised. May we stay together with the church, awaiting in faith with Our Blessed Mother, as we trust entirely in God, who loves us more than we can ever know.
