God has given us many ways to draw close to Him, and to draw strength from Him.
We have the Mass…an infinite source of grace, and path to friendship with God
We have Mary, his Mother, and through His gift to us, Our Mother too.
We have devotions, The Rosary
We have Saints for intercession…friends of God, and our friends, made available to us ANYTIME we need by the love of God.
Prayer, the Sacraments, His Word.
We have spiritual reading.
The morning offering
The daily examination of conscience ( a few minutes, checking on how we are doing).
All of these generous things, and more, are all ways to grow in unity with Him.
And offerings too…tough moments offered up to God with a sporting spirit.
The goal is holiness…the universal call to holiness.
So we spread these approaches to God across the day like telephone poles holding up a wire. We space them out evenly, naturally throughout the day, so that our line doesn’t sag…so we don’t draw away from Him!
Remember our relationship with God is a love affair. We put happy effort into a love affair…we surprise the person we love with little chatter, and gifts, or offerings. Ordinary things, and occasionally extraordinary ones too.
God is our Father, but He is also our great friend.
