A Gift of Love

The end of isolation is found in prayer. Through prayer, we become aware that God is present. Through prayer we become at home with the living presence with whom we can share everything. And in the presence of God we become aware of our complete dependence on the Creator. Prayer fosters within us a spirit of humility and the realization we cannot truly live without God.

Prayer is a gift of Love, and a means of living our whole life as a communion with the Lord, who through the Incarnation came to share in our human condition. As we encounter God in the depths of ourselves, we are no longer astonished by the darkness of God’s mystery, but we merely accept it, living by faith. We no longer belong to ourselves but to Love, the giver of the gift. When we enter fully in the presence we experience spontaneous joy…even during trials, hardships and suffering. Even when we are weak, empty and hurting, we know the Lord is present. Trusting in this presence we are compelled to accept everything as coming from God.
