Spiritual Exercises: Week 1 [Day 4]

Here’s a paragraph from one of the helps on Week 1 of the Exercises…

“The first and most important point is to begin this journey with great hope and confidence. God is never outdone in generosity. So, if we make even a small change in our weekly pattern, that is a tremendous opening for God to work in us. One way to affirm this hope and confidence is to express it for just a brief instant, each morning, at the same time each day — as I’m finding my slippers, or as I’m brushing my teeth, or while I’m pouring that first cup of coffee — “I know you are with me today, Lord.”

Because I’m not completely comfortable with “Lord” language, I tweaked it a little to “Holy One, I know you are with me today.” I say it each morning as I’m pouring my coffee. So simple…and yet so powerful.

Today I launch into reflections on adolescence and young adulthood. It could be interesting trying to find God in THOSE places!

Peace for your journey…
