Munus tuum (Mth 5:23)

God’s nature is all about an indefinable love and overwhelming sense of peace that embraces the whole creation. The two trillion galaxies, numerous black holes, supernovas and all the living form in the universe, explicitly proclaim the greatness and wisdom of God. Every creature is in the harmony with God the great Harmonizer. God is present in the universe, filling it, hovering over it and in many other ways that my human mind cannot comprehend. One thing I am sure that the Author of my life and of my brothers and sisters is the same God. The reality that we are all made in the image and likeness of God brings home the knowledge that we are inter connected in the dimension of our body and spirit. This is the common thread that God wants us to keep alive! Our God deeply desires that we own again this reality, renew it time to time specially when something does not work with the interconnectedness and harmony. God loves that we regain this consciousness with effort to reconcile with our estranged neighbour, than proceeding with gifts and sacrifices to him. This interconnectedness and brotherhood can even be fostered through profound silence and prayer, dying to one’s own ego, respecting the uniqueness of the other, observing rituals of reconciliation,  embracing a holistic approach to life, etc. Then, we can say that we are on the path that leads to the court of the divine (by s. Jessy Paul SSpS).
