Views 124


Fr Matthias gives the homily at Bloomington, IN, on Feb 21, 2024, on how true devotion is characterized by a love for God's will, which is crucial for the genuine transformation and renewal of mind and life in Christian spirituality.

Devotion in our spiritual life isn't just about knowing or doing what God wants, but really loving doing God's will. Father says that this kind of love leads to real change in ourselves, like becoming more patient or kind, because it's about wanting to follow God's plan for us with all our heart. Father encourages us to think about whether we truly love God's will and to ask God to help us love it more, because that's what will really make us grow and become more like Christ.
