Lectio Notebook

Every day is a new unfolding of our life in Christ. Surprises are always happening. God reserves the right to intrude into our lives at a moment’s notice, sometimes turning them upside-down. It is essential to be flexible, adjustable, ready to tear up our plans and put them in the wastebasket at God’s request.

Hence, both the contemplative vision and its incarnation are essential, and the place where they meet is contemplative prayer. This is the key to the preservation and growth of the creative vision as well as its appropriate incarnation on a day-to-day basis. This is what leads to purity of heart which is freedom from the false-self system, and hence, freedom to be at the disposal of God and those we serve.

The Mystery of Christ
