Discerning God’s Will – Feb 29 – Homily – Fr Terrance

Views 904


Fr Terrance gives the homily at Bloomington, IN on Feb 29, 2020, on how the account of St. Matthew's call to be a disciple highlights the need to discern the will of God for our lives so that we can become holy, be with him for all eternity and help others to do the same. He outlines three ways that with prayer will enable :

  1. God directly shows us a direction. i.e. St Paul and St. Matthew. Our will is clearly moved in a particular direction.

  2. Process discernment where we pray and discern on the alternatives and see which gives us peace and consolation.

  3. Discerning using our natural powers at a time of great tranquility, when we are not being swayed by passions and emotions and then weigh the pros and the cons.

All should be confirmed in prayer.

He recommends Fr. Timothy Galligher's book Discerning God's Will: https://www.amazon.com/Discerning-Will-God-Ignatian-Christian/dp/0824524896
