“Rather it is he who gives to everyone life and breath and everything. He made from one, the whole human race … and he fixed the ordered seasons and the boundaries of their regions, so that people might seek God, even perhaps grope for him and find him, though indeed he is not far from any one of us.” 
~ Acts 17:15, 22-18:1 (full readings)
Jack’s Reflections: It is by the very breath of life in all of those around us, the born and the unborn, and in the order of the seasons which bring life, that we see God, and are prompted to seek after Him. Then we learn, he is never farther away than we are from one another, and from His Creation, for He is our everything.  And so, like St. Brendan the Navigator of ancient Ireland who sailed for seven years in search of The Land of Promise, we are sailors on a high sea, sometimes with neither rudder nor sail, uncertain of our way. We take encouragement from each other, and then are called to trust that God will be our wind and compass.  And then, even on the darkest night, when it seems we’re hopelessly lost, we gaze upward to see that God has fixed the stars in the Heavens to lead us home, if we’ll just follow.
