Good Afternoon LIGHT Families!
I was recently reading a book (Changed Heart, Changed World by William A. Barry, SJ) when I was struck by a phrase that captures the very essence of our last Gathering’s focus. It speaks of “…the image of God as a parent inviting adult children to join the family business.”
The world is God’s family business. Only in this world can God attain the dream. But God can attain that dream only if we, who are created in God’s image and likeness, live out our likeness as God’s sons and daughters and accept the invitation to join the family business.
It is another call, coming through loud and clear that we are to be Co-Creators with our Heavenly Father. If you want to spend some time contemplating this truth, you might want to try this reflective exercise. It is one of many developed by St. Ignatius Loyola to help people deepen their relationship with God.
Enjoy the weekend!
