Over time, I slowly came to see that the call to holiness was an open invitation to enter fully into a committed relationship with God. But how do we do that? Our lives are already filled with obligations and struggles, stuffed with too many demands and things to do. But if we even take baby steps to responding to God’s constant embrace of us, God graciously nurtures growth in the relationship, by using events, circumstances, and people in our earth-bound lives as instruments to hasten a contemplative outlook on life. Prayer, however we define it, becomes a vital part of our day.
