By Sister Barbara Hudock, ASC

Do you ever wonder how God works in us?

I think God works in us in ordinary, every-day ways.

We are a conglomeration of all of our gifts, desires, hopes, fears, habits, knowledge, opinions.

And we bounce those off each other every day.

Every day, we are influenced by the people and all of creation that touches our lives. And every day, we influence others.

Somewhere in the middle of all that is the Spirit whose name might be Grace or Sophia exerting Her influence on us.

Through all this influencing and touching each others’ lives, every day we come to newness.

And God is working in us.
