Developing Our Realtionship with God 2

Many of the mystcal writers of our faith tradition say that God has first found us and we are now responding to His invitation. Indeed, the Gospel does say that “You have not chosen Me, it is I who have chosen you.” God is the initiator of this love relationship and He leaves it up to us to then open our heart to Him, to the Holy Spirit. This call to relationship is universal and the seed is scattered, so to speak, on the entire land but not everyone responds with the same enthusiasm and determination. It is truly a mystery because this relationship seems to be somewhat invisible. We sit in silence. We seek to open our heart and our mind to the movements of the Holy Spirit. And we wait.

About hermitsoftheholycross

The Hermits of the Holy Cross is a Contemplative Association for those who are permanently physically disabled and have become “home bound” to their local Church and are in need of continuous medical care. The Association of the Hermits of the Holy Cross is set-up in such a way that those who are ill and physically disabled can live out their monastic spirituality from their own home. We assist the Church and the world through our life of prayer and freely offering up our sufferings that stem from our disabilities. For the Hermits, our hermitage is within our heart and the Cross of Christ is life for us and for our world.
