...your Father knows what you need before you ask… (Matthew 6)

.

Nouwen’s voice:  The love of the Father embraces not just the return of the son but also the leaving of his child…In a very deep way we are, in our lives, often leaving and returning. This isn’t just a one-time event; it’s an ongoing experience. Today, get in touch with your own leavings and returnings. I believe that in a very deep sense, one has to be convinced of God’s love in order to take the risk of leaving once in a while…It’s important to understand that God’s love fills you and surrounds you whether you are leaving or returning, and that God waits with longing to welcome you on your return.

Merton’s Voice: The Holy Spirit comes to set the whole house of our soul in order, to deliver our minds from immaturity, alienation fear and tenacious prejudice.

Merton, Thomas. The New Man (New York: Farrar, Strauss, Giroux, 1961) 43

Psalm 34: 4-5

I sought the Lord, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. Look to him, and be radiant; so your faces shall never be ashamed.
