When we are feeling lonely—if we are brave enough to resist the urge to call someone up, or go shopping, or take a drug, or turn to music or TV or go to bed; if we are courageous enough to remain alone and instead of fleeing the pain, to go down into it—we will gradually notice another Presence there, silent, but benevolent and peaceful.
—Karl Rahner, SJ, in Spiritual Quest , Thomas Hart
From there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find him if you search after him with all your heart and soul. —Deuteronomy 4:29
Create a still, silent space today. Shut off the music; turn off the phone. Notice the Presence.
