Prayer & Work, Faith & Life; Sanctifying the World 9.23.19

  • Kathryn Jean Lopez: A Year With the Mystics: Visionary Wisdom for Daily Living; we need time for quiet and prayer to know God’s love and will, and truth about our lives, vocations, direction, faith; what saints who changed the world teach us today.
  • Mysticism is union with God. Deepening our prayer life makes trusting in God, easier. When you give God more time, he’ll start communicating in different ways.
  • Good Friday gives us such a gift in understanding and meditating on The Passion of our Lord.
  • Ignatian Examen: tools to examine and review the day, to see where God was at work; also a great way to prepare for confession. Prayer life is like our daily diet: nourish yourself daily.
