Honest Christianity – pursuing God

chloe-tags

As Sally wrote on Wednesday, our year three MCYM students spent a day last week drawing together the key values, principles, practices for their leadership and ministerial formation. They produced some inspiring ideas and commitments.  I have chosen this picture as it reminds me of much of what I do at the hospital which is making connections to things that are important to those I am working with – theologically reflecting on the everyday.

This was a prayer in my daily notes last week that drew together much of what we sought to express:

Prayer of Claude de la Colombiere SJ
Jesus grant that I may die pursuing you, that I may die loving you, that I may die for the love of you.

A prayer for those of us who pursue an honest and aspirational Christianity.
