(HT: google for Fr. Richard Rohr)
Fr. Rohr writes:
“Unless we can presume the the Lord is speaking right now, how much can we believe that he ever spoke? This is the premise on which we are proceeding: that the Lord is acting and speaking in our lives right now.
To have an attitude of faith is to hear the Lord speaking everywhere all the time, in the concrete and ordinary circumstances of our lives. Then religion and life have become one, and we are never far from God. That’s why people of faith never grow old and never grow tired. They don’t need signs and wonders, apparitions and visions. God has quietly broken through and stands perfectly revealed in the now of things.”
