The rhythm of love

There is a rhythm of Divine Love that pulsates through all creation and holds it in being. We are called to enter into and dance to that rhythm.

Only when we give up our self-grasping, self-seeking ideals and forget our small selves, do we become empty enough to allow God enter our hearts and dance to the Divine rhythm that lives within us so that we may become instruments of his Love. This is His will and purpose for us. It is good to recall the words of Jesus: "Whoever does the will of my Father, is my mother and brother and sister..." Being in the flow of the Divine will, then means being a many-splendoured relationship with the Lord. Picture is by courtesy of Fr. Donagh O'Shea, OP
