spiritual life/Online — Spring 2019

Spring 2019 issue of spiritual life/Online now available

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

This issue of spiritual life/Online brings you reflections on heart ache, longing for God, brokenness and healing, and openness to the will of God.

Our authors guide us through their journeys of searching for peace in God and their struggles to make it part of their lives. They speak to the human experience of loss and recovery, emptiness and fulfillment—a struggle experienced by the saints:

You have made us for yourself, O God,
and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.

(St. Augustine, Confessions, Book 1)

The theologian Karl Rahner speaks of his searching for God:

What else is there that I can tell You about Yourself, except that You are the One without whom I cannot exist, the Eternal God from whom alone I, a creature of time, can draw the strength to live, the Infinity who gives meaning to finiteness?

I am the one who belongs not to himself, but to you.

Join us in learning from these authors about the beauty of our relationship with God. 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
