God knows how to come back home : reflections on an active spirituality…
Ainda não há conversas na Discussão sobre este livro.
Until the time of Ignatius, deep union with God was mainly associated with contemplative prayer in convents and monasteries. Ignatius showed that God can be found not only in prayer but also in the marketplace, through a 'mysticism of service'. This kind of active spirituality, argues Pat O'Sullivan, needs three characteristics. It must maintain our motivation and zeal, help us make sense of the darkness and deepen our sense of Providence. Ignatian spirituality, he argues, can bring all three together, and so help us find God in our everyday lives. We do not do this alone, but walk with others, and can act in ways that promote rather than impede their, and our own, journey to God. And at the end of the journey, O'Sullivan says, we can make the epitaph for Ignatius' tomb our own: 'Not to be hemmed in by all that is great, yet able to be caught up in all that is small and tiny - that is truly divine.'
