Woven into the Mundane

God humbly came to the earth He created. Spirituality is not other-worldly; it is found in our relationships, work, attitudes, illness and dreams. Simply put, spirituality is rooted in ordinary emotional, physical, and mental life. The difficulty lies in achieving the concentrated attention needed to observe what is going on, moment by moment, in ourselves and around us, to uncover that spiritual dimension. Redemption and resurrection are only real when they are experienced in the depths of our humanity. Spiritual growth hinges on our ability to see the divine woven into mundane human reality…a feat which will take a lifetime.

    I think this very well describes our relationship to the spirit. Thank you.

    Gerry I love the melding of “mundane” “simply put” and “the difficulty is…”
    It’s the whole story of the Our Father, the two fundamental commandments, human life trying to live in Pentecost times.

    Pope Francis’ recent homily shared the following about 3 gazes Jesus bestowed on Peter in the history of their relationship. “Lord you are here among us. Fix your gaze on me and tell me what I must do, how I must weep for my mistakes, my sins, and with what courage I must continue on the path you have traveled before me.” /// “He always looks at us with love. He asks us something. He forgives us and he gives us a mission.”

    Mundane, simply put, the difficulty is…. and it’s lifetime…. Oh yes.
