Advent Hope – Day #6 – The Wild Goose

December 5, 2015

So I didn’t get this post written last night. It was a full day yesterday and I was admittedly quite tired when I crawled into bed last night.

However, today, I’m sharing my morning meditation.

The Wild Goose is a video series given by a dear priest we knew in college. My memories of Father Dave are so rich. He was there to form Nate & I during our college years and I’ve read several of his published things since. Not only does he make me smile…gosh we had a great time in our 20s with him, but he truly has a spirit of God. Father always had a smile and a listening ear. I remember so many times when we spoke just in passing, always available even if just for a few minutes.

I love how human relationships can touch your heart and soul in ways that just aren’t easily explained. To see Father Dave on this video, to hear his words of love, to remember standing next to him so many years ago as he spoke both in person and from the pulpit, to remember we were just kids (before marriage and before parenthood), and to know that God’s love in and of itself and, as an extension, Father Dave’s preaching and vocation is still the same.

I am so very thankful for the richness of our Catholic faith. I’m eternally grateful for my own experiences of the Holy Spirit, awakened while studying and living at Franciscan University. The gifts of the Holy Spirit were sealed upon me at my confirmation, but not understood until my time at school. There were so many profound moments of love and growth of the soul as I delved deeply into prayer and lived surrounded by holy friends and adult formators while living at Franciscan University. My list of people who have shaped who I am today, my understanding of God, my experience of Divine love are numerous. My time at Franciscan was more than just a college degree, growing up away from home, or forming lifelong friendships. It was truly a time of experiencing Christ. It’s those moments, those places I lived while in college that I revisit when I want to center myself again. I’ll maybe blog about college another time, but I wanted to leave you with my meditation material for today.

Thank you Father Dave for bringing Christ to me again. There’s a smile on my face and a warmth in my heart. God’s love is alive!

Come Holy Spirit. Enlighten the hearts of the faithful and enkindle in them the fire of your love.
