God is my Father

god-the-father

Our loving father God watches over us.

As we go through life with its darkness as well as its light, its turbulence as well as its calm, its suffering as well as its joys,  we find great consolation in the fact that watching over us and guiding us always is our loving Father God. In this meditation we use the writings of St Josemaria Escriva, Bonaventure Perquin and the Catechism of the Catholic Church to consider how:

  • Jesus has revealed to us that God is not just a far off creator of the universe but truly a loving Father
  • God reveals himself as our Father in many ways
  • The knowledge that God is our Father should move us to strive to become more like him
  • This knowledge leads us to trust in our Father God at all times, especially in suffering and difficulties

 

Meditation on the Holy Spirit

St Josemaria called the Holy Spirit “the great unknown” because so few are aware of his many roles in our life. In this meditation we consider some of these roles and we are encouraged to develop friendship with and devotion to the Holy Spirit.
