spiritual life/Online — Fall 2018

Fall 2018 issue of spiritual life/Online now available

By Edward O’Donnell, OCD, Editor
The Madonna of the Book by Sandro Botticelli

This issue of spiritual life/Online brings you the wisdom of St. Teresa of Avila in the form of outbursts from her heart to God. She speaks to God as a dearest friend for she loved God above all else. She says:

O Lord, grant that my love be not the fruit of my imagination but be proved by works.”

St. Teresa’s companion this month is Thomas Merton, who wrote extensively on our relationship with God:

Therefore each particular being, in its individuality, its concrete nature and entity, with all its own characteristics and its private qualities and its own inviolable identity, gives glory to God by being precisely what He wants it to be here and now.”

Join us in learning from these authors about the beauty of our relationship with God. I hope that this issue of our online magazine will provide you with nourishment for your spiritual journey.

God’s Blessings!

May You be blessed, my God, forever! May all things praise You, Lord, without end, since in You there can be no end.”

St. Teresa of Avila
