At Bible Study on Friday, we were talking about how we would like to get emails from God - a to-do list for each day that we could simply download and follow. After all, it would be so much easier to do God's will if we actually knew what it was!
This excerpt from today's Living Faith entry by Sr. Chris Koellhoffer, I.H.M. speaks to that every desire.
When we look back on the lives of the saints, the great cloud of witnesses who inspire and inform our own journey to holiness, it can appear in retrospect that these holy ones knew at every moment exactly what God asked of them. In reality, there were not always clear signs or easy answers. They lived with the same struggles that are our daily bread. What set them apart is a willingness to live in the in-between times, to follow Jesus with openness, discernment and trust all the days of their lives.
