Something to think and pray about this week
You can discern throughout your life. This applies to the big choices as well as to the small things in everyday life. Discernment is a way of life. You never finish discerning. The art of discernment can always be refined. The quality of attention can be more and more finely tuned. Barely perceptible experiences of joy become sources of gratitude and energy. Small faults and failings that were previously unnoticed will be felt more acutely. In this way, at every stage of life, you can grow in love and trust more in all that God offers, wherever and whenever he offers it. Increased vigilance means being able to avoid falling as easily as before into sometimes very subtle traps. This sort of growth requires regular reflection on daily experience.
