Unifying the Self

Hi Everyone,
I hope you all have been doing well. I have been thinking a great deal lately about how we compartmentalize our lives and act at times that each compartment does not effect the other. This struggle that we all face is the danger of letting our lives be divided into compartments each having a seperate place in our lives, but none of them connected. As contemplatives, the first thing to do is to recover our basic natural unity. Our compartmentalized being into a coordinated and simple whole and learn to live as a unified human person. Have a most blessed week.
Your brother in Christ Jesus,
Hermits of St. Giles

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.
