We are encountered so as to encounter others
According to Pope Francis, every time the Lord visits us, he calls us out of our house. "God's presence in our lives never leaves us tranquil; it always pushes to do something. When God comes, he always calls us out of our house. We are visited so that we can visit others; we are encountered so as to encounter others; we receive love in order to give love."
Have I encountered God today? How has God shown me His love? Who have I encountered? Did I pass on that love? I think these are questions to ask ourselves each day. We can always take time to encounter someone by e-mail or phone or at work or wherever.
