Orando cuando Dios calla

La oración es un diálogo con Dios, un “compartir de cerca entre amigos”, dijera Sta. Teresa de Jesús. Abrimos nuestros corazones a Dios y dependemos de su respuesta. Nuestra existencia misma depende de la Palabra de Dios, por la cual “todo fue creado” (Juan 1,3). ¿Qué hacer entonces cuando nuestras peticiones más urgentes no reciben respuesta? ¿Cómo orar cuando Dios calla?

Prayer without ceasing through the Psalms

When St. Paul says to “pray without ceasing,” I think to myself, “That’s all well and good for you, St. Paul, but I am just a regular person.” I have carpool and Costco and an overflowing calendar. Besides, sometimes I am too mad to pray. Some-times I am too lonely to pray. And sometimes, let’s be honest, I am just too stubborn to pray.

The human face of God

“The angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.’” (Luke 2:10-12)
