How Each of Us Can Rediscover Jesus

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 08/17/15

ZR: Many Christians have moments when they think, "I need to get closer to Jesus," but then nothing happens. It’s certainly true for me. How do you make that happen? How do we rediscover Jesus in our daily, busy lives? 

MK: The desire itself is a beautiful thing. The danger is to let it pass like a flash of lightning. When we experience the desire we need to nurture it. And again, to turn to Jesus transparently and say, “Jesus, I have this desire to know you better, but I don’t know what to do with it,” is a great place to start. 

The Gospels also provide limitless opportunities for reflection and renewal, though I do think we need to experience them outside of the chaos that often surrounds us at Mass on Sunday. 

But the fastest path is service. To get out of ourselves—to put another person first, to imitate Jesus by serving others—is a guaranteed way to liberate us from the self-centered comfort-seeking that seems to dominate the modern life.
