The business of spring

For most students the spring is the busiest time of year. It also seems that the weeks fly by very quickly after Easter. It also doesn't help that the weather is very conducive to being outside. In less than a month's time some of us seminarians will be going to New York to see the Holy Father; on April 26th the fourth-year theologians from the Archdiocese of St. Paul/Minneapolis will be ordained to the priesthood; on top of that, papers will be due, presentations need to be prepared, and the list goes on. As one approaches this very busy time in the year, we can get crunched for time and sleep and we can easily find refreshment in other things besides God. The remedy: good planning and remembering why and for what we are doing this. Another helpful thing is a book that I read a few years back by Brother Lawrence. The book is titled: "The Practice of the Presence of God." Brother Lawrence gives very helpful and practical tips on how to keep God in all parts of our daily life. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to grow closer to God in the midst of their daily struggles.
