Quote of the Day
Mary teaches us that love has an order to it. Contemplating Mary, Star of the New Evangelisation, is perhaps a gentle invitation to us to live out the various aspects of life in a harmonious way, recognising that what matters is to do the will of God who loves us immensely. And so we can find time for prayer, exercise, looking after our health, attending to correspondence, engaging in continuing formation.
All of these aspects can be opportunities to express our love for God and neighbour. Focussing on doing the will of God provides a unifying thread to our day because we see things in terms of the will of God not as something we have to do or to which we have to resign ourselves, but as a divine adventure of being able to love God and moment by moment co-create and co-redeem the world with him, in the little and the big things. It’s not the what we do but how we do it that matters.
