The principle and foundation of our faith is Godís
unconditional love for us; we are being upheld by God, moment by
moment. ďThe love of God poured out on us through the Holy SpiritĒ
(Romans 5:5). Godís word, Jesus Christ, embraced the human condition
and filled it with Divine potential.
How do we experience this gift of God, the mystery of Christ within?
Fr Bill tells us that in order to experience union with God, to grow in
the awareness of the mystery of God, we must cultivate a listening
heart. In this recording, Fr Bill shares his insights and those of
several well-known spiritual writers about how we can accomplish this.
Fr Billís reflections were recorded during the Dallas/Fort Worth
Chapterís annual Four Day Centering Prayer Retreat at the Montserrat
Jesuit Retreat House, Lake Dallas, Texas, May 30 to June 2, 2013.
