Reclaiming Rest

God’s invitation remains the same: Just rest. It’s so simple and so transformative. The radical practice of rest can help us to recognize in ourselves the very patterns of effort that consume our energy and our lives. It can help us to let go of these useless strategies and this relentless striving. Rest takes us to the lip of the well, and helps us to fall into God’s generous grace.

At this time when our lives are upended, consider reclaiming “rest” as an essential practice. Br. Nicholas Bartoli invites us to fall into God’s generous grace >
