You are the deepest ground of our being
and you love us infinitely more than we love ourselves.
Help us to open ourselves up.
to your life-giving challenging presence in us.
Enlighten the eyes of our heart
to discern your most holy will,
in which all that is good
has its source and sustenance,
today and everyday, for ever and ever.

Encountering God, is primarily a matter of the
heart, though no doubt the intellect also plays a
role. "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God" (Mt 5:8).
Our deepest and most authentic desire is the point
at which we are most united with God. It requires a great sincerity and inner freedom to identify that desire.
