Daily Lenten Reflection (4/1)
In God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth
Not in magic or manipulation. Not in divine powers that I can wield for my own purposes. Not in heavenly voodoo. But in God, source of a light that is still hidden to me, source of a life towards which I grope with death hard at my heels, source of a joy that lies in waiting somewhere beneath or beyond or within this darkness.
“To discover who I am I need to discover the relation in which I stand to an active, prior Other, to a transcendent creator: I don’t first sort out who I am then seek for resources to sustain that identity.” Bono
