Today’s Gospel continues the story of Nicodemus, from St John. Jesus continues: ‘The wind blows where it wills, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know whence it comes or whither it goes; so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit’.
A further comment from St John of the Cross: ‘We must remember that the Word, the Son of God, together with the Father and the Holy Spirit, is hidden in essence and in presence, in the inmost being of the soul. That soul, therefore, that will find Him, must go out from all things in will and affection, and enter into the profoundest self-recollection, and all things must be to it as if they existed not. Hence, St. Augustine says: “I found You not without, O Lord; I sought You without in vain, for You are within,” God is therefore hidden within the soul, and the true contemplative will seek Him there in love, saying, “Where have You hidden Yourself?”’
May God bless you in your journeying this day.
