The amazing nearness of God is obscured by the distractions of daily life. God is ever pursuing us and loving us with a perfect love. In between the noise and chaos of this earthly existence we can sometimes catch a glimpse of those moments of actual grace. In the quiet contemplation of God, when we slow down and become still, God with us and in us becomes apparent. Even during dark times and suffering, God’s love for us is living and working and moving through us. This page is a place to reflect on the challenge of holding onto the truth of God’s amazing nearness in all times and all people. How are we to respond to and understand this Love in a world of distractions and suffering?
