On a recent morning, when I was praying before the Blessed Sacrament, I saw a light on the wall that I have never seen before. Thinking that I had mistakenly turned on a light, I went to check it out. Turns out it was the sun! God was awaking the day and awaking my spirit, giving me a new spiritual breath.
I had just been reading. “Are we practical materialists? At times we become so enmeshed in the reality of daily life that we don’t give the slightest thought to the spiritual world, which is infinitely greater than the material one that consumes all our attention. Through our baptism, we are marked out for heavenly things. We bear on our soul the indelible mark that proclaims to the universe that we are children of God. Every time we take a spiritual breath, and glance heavenwards, we renew that birth in the Spirit through which the Lord claimed us as his own. Let us never spend more than a minute as practical materialists!” (regnumchristi.org)
That quick morning sunrise experience was definitely a spiritual breath. All praise and glory to God!
