Question: WHAT HAS SURPRISED AND DELIGHTED YOU MOST RECENTLY?
Transcript of Video:
I think a little bit of the playfulness of God is actually coming to learn about your own creation. In other words, getting in touch with who God created you to be: in that there’s just, kind of, this adventure of discovery. And Father Benson actually told the little story – I think in the Instructions on the Religious Life, where he talks about, you know, here God is like the adult: God is like the momma sitting there, who knows all of this stuff already that the toddler is amazed at. But yet the toddler is coming up with a ball and bringing it to the mother’s lap and go, “Look, a ball!” And the mother is sitting there going, “Oh, how wonderful,” and is just delighting in the fact that the toddler loves the ball. And so Father Benson’s message was that, I think, God delights in us being delighted, just like a mother who is sitting there, delighting in the fact that her baby loves the ball.
