Surrounded by God
May the Lord and his kingdom be above you, so that your minds may be drawn upwards; may he be within you, so that you may be truly rooted in him; may he be as a firm foundation beneath you, so that you may always rely upon him; may he be at your right side, so that he will never let you swerve to pleasures or vanities; may he be at your left, so that you may never be broken by adversity; may he be behind you, so that through fear of him you will be recalled from any backsliding onwards to your perfection. May God do all this.
~St. Peter Faber, SJ, in the The Ignatian Tradition, Kevin F. Burke,

A great prayer with an eye-catching image – God is within us and all around us, protecting, nourishing, sustaining, drawing us on.
May you find rest and peace in your “God Bubble” today!
