Celtic Christians saw the hand of God in the early morning fire which warmed them, in the loving glance of their children, in the labors of their hands, and in the sunset at the end of a day. Catholic columnist Ronald Rolheiser shares that perspective. He urges us to locate the divine in the ordinary.
The Canadian author sees gratitude and humility as spiritual attributes which can be honed in relationships and in our response to whatever comes our way. Rolheiser finds signs of grace in sex, the eucharist, and a finely finished death. He also believes that the church would be well served by a fresh emphasis on incarnation, wonder, and imaginative storytelling. Rolheiser makes a good case for everyday spirituality.
