A Catholic in Cleveland

Andrea McGovern explores Faith, Easter, and Catholicism at Living our faith calls us to be present to the people we encounter and listen to where they are right here and now. We are asked to live each day as a prayer, mindfully paying attention to what feels true and good and right, and in that way we are experiencing life as a prayer, a constant connection with the Divine, the Great Creator, God. I'm working my way through George Kaitholil's book The Prayer Called Life, written by a priest of the Society of St. Paul who was born in India and is well versed in the spiritual traditions of both East and West, as well as Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, Lao Tzu, The Parallel Sayings, by Richard Hoople. I think we can learn much from reading and re-reading The Bible, but other teachers open us up to a fresh way of looking at what we're called to do. How many of us encounter ideas that strike us as true or find we move in a new direction without knowing why and fail to acknowledge our truth in the experience? Read Andrea's blog, let it resonate, and think about your own journey. We are a community.
