Horizons - The communion of the Godhead is not a closed circle, for the dance of the Trinity comes with an open invitation: a call to share in God's life, to share in this ecstatic dance.
Horizons - Jesus gave us the sacraments in recognition that we do have bodies, and we need to be able to encounter God in a sensual way.
Horizons – Once, preparing for my canonical novitiate year, I did a weeklong retreat in South Texas in August. I received so many blessings. Each Lent since, I visit this "desert" in my imagination when I pray.
Horizons - I have known so many holy people. This time of year, when the veil between the living and the dead becomes even thinner, I can feel their prayers for my vocation, their pushes of encouragement in my journey.
