Fr. Peter John Cameron, OP - published on 10/10/22

The Presence of God is a shelter and protection ...

Fr. Basil Maturin (+1915):

The Presence of God is a shelter and protection for those whose duties compel them to live amidst many distractions and much variety of circumstances. We can withdraw ourselves at any moment when we feel ourselves getting lost in a crowded life, and rest under the shelter of his Presence. The Presence of God at once lifts one out of oneself, yet not in such a way as to leave one in ignorance of one’s faults. One sees oneself—indeed, one knows oneself in a far truer way than by any amount of introspection, but one sees oneself without self-depreciation.
