22 December Reflection Quote

"God is so great in his mystery and shows himself only to the simple and those intent on him in humility and freedom from earthly entanglements." Madeleine Sophie Barat, Letter 93 to Emilie Giraud, 1828.

We don’t need to reject the good things of this world in order to encounter God. We do, however, need to be free in our relationship with them rather than enslaved by them.

– can our relationships with material things stop us from being free to love and serve God?
– do intelligence and knowledge sometimes get in the way of embracing Mystery?
– how has God shown him/her self to you?
