"We don"t know how to look at God. We don"t know where to look. We don"t know what to look for. It is God in us that loves God. And all we can do is get ourselves out of the way." ~Richard Rohr

It would be great if there was a simple formula in our search for God. We are often unsure where to start and how to begin. Our searches are many, from our local church, attending Mass and saying prayers that vary from traditional to deeply personal. Some find that these simply are not for them and search elsewhere. These searches include finding God in the humdrum of daily life, music, reading, reflection, meditation, relaxation and so on. Whatever and wherever our search, it is good that we are searching. The one link in every search is that God is often closer to us than we can imagine. It is we ourselves who block this close bond. For years the emphasis was on God as distant and removed. It"s time to feel the closeness of God. As our photo today suggests, its a journey best taken at a much slower pace and in our own time.

Thought For The Week

'In any tragedy there is always a wonderful outbreak of care and help. Maybe God is the spirit of love and goodness that inspires people at a time like this. Could God be the one who suffers rather than the one who controls?' ~Tony Flannery

As chaplain to a big secondary school I get asked many different questions. One common question is why God allows so many tragedies to happen? My explanation is God never deliberately causes a tragedy to happen. That would be a cruel and harsh God. Then I'm asked if God is not the cause then why doesn't God stop or prevent it happening? Again this is difficult to answer. We often speak about God's love for us, who only wants the best for us and who journeys with us every step of the way. In any tragedy God feels our hurt, pain, anger, grief and even abandonment. God is just as helpless because God can't prevent or stop something. But nothing can stop God's spirit of love and goodness in the middle of any tragedy.
