God Speaks to All of Us

“God does speak to all of us without exception in a more direct way than we have yet mentioned. It is a hidden way, by which He enters directly into our thoughts and desires. Our most hidden secrets are not secrets to Him. He comes right into our mind. Our thoughts are not only our thoughts; our desires are not only our desires — they may also be God’s thoughts and desires. We know we can do nothing without God. Even such ordinary things as eating, breathing, and walking cannot be done without the ordinary help that God gives us. But, in this instance, we are presupposing this natural help of God and are referring to a greater and more noble assistance from Him.”

-Fr. Killian J. Healy, O. Carm, Awakening Your Soul to the Presence of God

    Knowing and believing our Lord is always present with us, in us, we realize that our love for others does not exist only in our hearts; and we can share our love without fear.Being ordinary in others eyes may bring our Father to the forefront.
