Thirsting for God

Saturday, June 2, 2018



Today, in Mercy, we pray with the deep longing of Psalm 63. Though God is closer to us than our breath, there is always that small – or large – gap in our comprehension where we feel an emptiness. As humans, we depend on our senses to understand reality. But we are loved by a God Who does not speak, or move, or respond in our language or dimensions. We long for the Divine consolation that comes ever so fleetingly in a wordless prayer, in a subtle melody, a child’s glance, a thunderous rain. The psalmist “gazed toward the sanctuary” to satisfy her thirst. Where will you open your gaze today to experience God?

    “We are made for You, Oh Lord! And our hearts are restless until they rest in You!” For all the guilt he gave us, sometimes St. Augustine nails it. Will we ever not thirst and hunger for God?
