6th May 2020 - Finding God in all things

As I was reflecting with today’s readings, I was reminded of the Ignatian value of “Finding God in all things.”

It started with Psalm 19 “The heavens declare the glory of God”.   Yes, the heavens, the earth, the animals, the trees, the flowers, the seas and sea creatures.  All of creation declare the glory of God.  All creation reminds us, shows us a bit about who, what and how God is.  The beauty, the grandeur, God’s love for us.  The heavens do declare the glory of God.

Then I went to our Gospel reading from John.  Jesus’ declaration that the Father is in him and he is in the Father is a reminder to me that we all carry God within us. God loves us all and is present within us.  We get to choose, however, to recognize this and enter into relationship or not.

Lastly, the reading from First Corinthians reminded me that God is in all of our experiences, even death.  It a message of the Paschal Mystery. How are we being invited to notice God in All Things today?
