Pilgrimage

I cannot learn about God.
I can only unlearn the things
that are keeping me
from a full awareness of God.

To find Christ you must make a pilgrimage
to the center of your being,
to the place where the human and the divine meet.

The key to being a pilgrim
is to remain still interiorly as you journey…
otherwise you are just a wanderer.

To pray is to embark on a journey without end –
a journey deep into the heart of darkness, of paradox, of mystery.

The journey to God is slow.
Each day, we inch our way along a steep, winding road.
The pace of spiritual transformation
moves about as quickly as traffic in Los Angeles.

Spirituality is essentially a journey
in which we move from what we are
to what we will be;
it is a journey to weakness.
We truly learn to live when we begin
to explore our weaknesses.
Every experience of weakness
is an opportunity of growth and renewed life.
Weaknesses transformed by the reality of Christ
becomes life-giving virtues.
