Spiritual Awakening

A Story of spiritual awakening (St. Augustine[1])

Late have I loved you, Beauty so ancient and so new, late have I loved you!
Lo, you were within,
 but I outside, seeking there for you,
 and upon the shapely things you have made
 I rushed headlong – I, misshapen.
You were with me, but I was not with you.
They held me back far from you,
 those things which would have no being,
 were they not in you.

Towards Spiritual Transformation

Formation for Spiritual transformation

The central chord that unifies all programs of Claretian formation is their orientation to lead the formee to progressive union and conformity with Christ, the evangelizer (GPF 12). It is the process of getting a “new heart and new spirit” (Ez. 18.31) whereby the spiritual transformation of the formee takes place. If we want to move from mere desire to deed, from spiritual ideals to credible living of Christian values, our formation has to take the process of spiritual transformation in a realistic manner.

“Spiritual transformation, from a Christian perspective, challenges the individual to live for the one true God rather than mere idols. The goal of Christian transformation is a commitment to unconditionally finding God’s will revealed in the person of Jesus, and his vision of the kingdom of God. Strategies for ongoing religious transformation include a regu­lar prayer life, fasting, spiritual reading, and almsgiving”. (Len Sperry).
