“Waiting, waiting, waiting. Our spiritual lives are a vigil of waiting. We wait with hope for the advent of God. Yet as we wait for God, God is already here with us. And we are with God, yet not fully so, and so we wait, living with paradox and expectancy. Spiritual transformation never ends…it is always new, forever beginning, constantly evolving..”
Yesterday we celebrated Thomas Merton’s life and remembered his wisdom. He was an honest seeker – sharing his struggles and inspirations. In this season of waiting – may these words inspire our own time of reflection and quiet.
