“To Be EnLightened” (Sr. Joan Chittister)

To be enlightened is to see behind all the forms life takes to the God who holds them in being. Enlightenment sees, too, behind the shapes, icons and language that intend to personalize God to the God who is too personal, too encompassing, to be any single shape or form or name. Enlightenment takes us beyond our parochialisms to the presence of God everywhere, in everyone, in the universe.
