'Carmelite mystics and writers have understood that 'being in God' and 'being in His things' do not always coincide. If we become anxious about a thousand things related to God without being rooted in God (Luke 10:38-42) then sooner or later He presents us with the bill; we realize that we have lost Him along the way'
(Pope Francis, September 2019)
How might this be true in the general pattern of our daily lives?
What specific examples of Carmelite teaching and practice might Pope Francis have in mind?
How do you manage to retain a spiritual and a mental focus on the 'one thing' that Jesus speaks of in the passage Luke 10:38-42?
