“God comes to you disguised as your life.” – Paula D’Arcy

Where can I go from your spirit? From your presence, where can I flee?
Yesterday I quoted Julian of Norwich: “The fullness of joy is to behold God in everything.”
This is also the spirituality of St. Ignatius which challenges us to encounter God in all things.
I think you would also find that St. Francis found God in all of creation.
In his Canticle of the Sun, he writes: “Be praised, my Lord, through all your creatures, especially through my lord Brother Sun…Sister Moon…Brother Wind…Sister Water”…and so on.
This whole idea is a game-changer.
God is not somewhere far, far away in some distant heaven.
God is both here, there and everywhere.
Inventor and visionary R. Buckminster Fuller once said, “God is a verb, not a noun.”
St. Paul said that in God “we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28).
Scripture itself says that “God is love” (1 John 4:8).
And Jesuit theologian and scientist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin said, “Love is a sacred reserve of energy; it is like the blood of spiritual evolution.”
Allow yourself to bask in the Mystery of such a love – and rejoice!
