I’m sipping on chai, and trying to keep my mind focused on tasks at hand, but my mind is floating on by. I’ve been feeling spiritually dry for a few months now. I don’t hear His voice, but I am filled with hope. I find hope in the small moments where Beauty captures my heart: the wonderful spices of my chai tea, a picture of Mary on my desk, the absolute silence surrounding me. These are the moments that confirm His presence, His love. I know He is everywhere and more importantly, He is with me. Stay close to Him in the sacraments, this I know is the path to joy. Union with the Father. I may not feel the union, but I know it is real. I pray that if you are reading this and struggling to have faith, you will sit quitely, find something beautiful to contemplate and give Him permission to transform your heart.
