“Have we ever kept quiet, even though we wanted to defend ourselves when we had been unfairly treated? Have we ever forgiven someone even though we got no thanks? Have we ever been absolutely lonely? Have we ever tried to love God when we are no longer being borne on the crest of the wave of enthusiastic feeling? Let us search in our life. If we find such experiences, then we have experienced the Spirit.” Karl Rahner
Let’s add to this list of ways of experiencing the Spirit in our lives. Just search your life as Rahner suggests and share what you find in a comment to this post.
Here’s one of mine: Whenever I am just “being” and then note guiltily that I’m not being “productive” but I DON’T look for something to do, I know I have experienced the Spirit.
