Hidden and Waiting

The following comes from our new film on St. Francis of Assisi.

Hidden and Waiting

A thick blanket of fog
is hiding the sun
and covering Assisi.

The innermost essence of God
is hidden from us,
totally separated from the created world.
We can see hints of God’s love,
which is enduring and incomprehensible.
God is utterly transcendent
and lovingly immanent.

The call to holiness is an invitation
to enter fully into
a committed relationship with God.
As we respond,
God graciously nurtures growth
in the relationship,
by using events, circumstances and people
in our lives as instruments
to hasten a contemplative outlook on life.
Prayer becomes a vital part of our day;
and, in prayer, we encounter more fully
the Author of our life.

This personal encounter with the Creator
slowly transforms us into a Divine likeness,
as it gently erases
all traces of the un-God-like stuff within us.
In prayer, we unlock
the vault to our deepest self
and allow light to shine on God
who is already abiding
at the very core of our being,
hidden from us
yet patiently waiting for us.
