Your only food: “The Father’s will (Jn 4:34); that is, you live and grow by the will of God. Your actions proceed from the will of God. The will of God is like food which makes you live strongly and happily; if you live apart from the will of God, you will die. (Cardinal Van Thuan, Five Loaves and Two Fish)


To seek the will of God in ones life is fundamentally to seek the face of Christ. Christ is the icon of the Father’s will and to gaze on Christ is to encounter and learn the contours, the shading and the edge of God’s will. “Have I been with you for so long a time and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father … Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me…” (Jn 14:9-12).
