April 10 ~ Our Spirituality Against an Infinite Horizon

"Whatever the expression, everyone is ultimately talking about the same thing--an unquenchable fire, a restlessness, a longing, a disquiet, a hunger, a loneliness, a gnawing nostalgia, a wildness that cannot be tamed, a congenital, all-embracing ache that lies at the center of human experience and is the ultimate force that drives everything else... What we do with our longings, both in terms of handling the pain and the hope they bring us, that is our spirituality." ~ Ronald Rolheiser

We are all on a spiritual quest. For writer Father Ronald Rolheiser, O.M.I, of Toronto, Canada, the joy of life is seeing God in every moment.

The General Councillor for his order, the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, he is a regular columnist for the Catholic Herald. Rolheiser celebrates faith, life, and heart and shares his light with others.

"You feel your own life your heart, your mind, your body, your sexuality, the people and things you are connected to and you spontaneously fill with the exclamation: 'God, it feels great to be alive!' That's delight," he wrote in The Holy Longing.

We are all one, with the same spirit. What we do with our longings IS spirituality. Look within and honor the goodness that dwells in your heart. Live with delight. Live passionately...

With the Holy Spirit, celebrate life.
