Encountering God in the Consecrated Life
But I have encountered God in the most humbling of ways over the past weeks:
In a young woman with Lupus in the RCIA class still questioning God: "Why me?" But at the same time recognizing that her illness has brought her closer to God.
In a medical doctor recently diagnosed with MS, coming to terms with her illness and realizing that she is more understanding now toward her patients.
In a mother and son who give of their time once a week to tend the garden.
In the sister I live with who puts up with my quirks.
In a father and his two sons who gave so generously of their time and expertise to build a Marian grotto at Dominican Wellspring.
Even in the kids from a school opposite who call me Granny! They challenge me to forgive seven times seventy times!
And my list can go on but I pause now to ask you:
Where, when, how, and in whom have you encountered God?
