“The family is not just a routine relationship; it is our sanctification. Work is not just a job; it is our exercise in miracle making” from the jan.5-may 6-sept.5 meditation
Also from the jan.5-may 6-sept.5 meditation: God is neither cajoled nor captured, the rule makes plain. God is in the Here and Now in Benedictine spirituality. It is we who are not. It is we who are trapped in the past, angry at what formed us, fixated on a future that is free from pain or totally under our control. But God is in our present, waiting for us there.
