Our Experience of God

God reveals himself to us, above all, through his interaction with us.  It is through our lived experience with God that we come to know God. And when we reflect on our own life with God, we discover the loving Father who created us and sustains us; we experience the saving and healing love of Christ in his Church; we aware of His indwelling Spirit whose work in us and among us shows us the illusion of our independence, as well as the reality our divine destiny. All we know about the nature of God we have learned through our life with Him.  God’s revelation of himself is therefore really and truly his gift of himself, who is Love.  And the Divine Love desires nothing more than to be loved and to live united in love with us.
