March Reflection 2014

Going Forward, Hearts Centred in God

 "We have one solid comfort amidst this little tripping about our hearts can always be in the same place, centred in God, for whom alone we go forward or stay back" Catherine McAuley

I think Catherine would have been at home in the twenty first century of busyness and activity. She juggled many roles but, when she faced obstacles or became anxious about how to best serve those most needy, she turned to God.  In her words we catch a glimpse of the way she was able to quieten her fears by her constant prayer and trust in Divine Providence. Catherine invites us to do the same.

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me".    Philippians  4:13

During Lent we are invited to quieten our lives in order to sharpen our awareness of ourselves and God.  Let us allow Christ to take us to our still point at the centre of our lives which is the source of our life and ministry.

Ponder on the challenge of balancing action and contemplation in your life.
