Ave Maria!

Father Angelo is speaking on prayer out in the desert at The Pinnacles in Nambung National Park, Western Australia.  Very nice ambiance for a reflection on our perseverance in prayer, especially when our spirits are dry.

Ave Maria!

    Thank you, Father, for those inspirational words. Spiritual gluttony is a very common imperfection in the spiritual life. Due to our damaged human nature we are easily inclined to pray with the intention to ‘taste’ Gods presence instead of pleasing Him.

    The silence, vastness and emptiness of the desert forces us to focus on God, and on God alone. It leads us to think about the Divine Heart Itself, instead of the gifts that flow forth from It.

    I should be beating my chest out of repentance as I write this, though, because I struggle with this imperfection myself.

    Yes, Father Angelo, “The Wisdom of the desert.”
