The Chaos of Life
Spiritan spirituality brings order out of the chaos of daily life by leading us into the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Libermann's practical spirituality shows the way to experience the divine in every moment of life and in all the ordinariness of life. Libermann's direction is just as vital and attractive for lay people as it is for Spiritans.
Guided by the Spirit
Married people are always changing roles: from spouse to parent to employee to friend. Parenting presents its own metamorphoses: from caregiver to disciplinarian to playmate to teacher. This kind of "friendly chaos" makes married couples continually responsive to others in the concrete situations of life.
The Spiritan gift of evangelical availability opens this chaos to the guiding power of the Holy Spirit. One day the Holy Spirit is leading us to act in this way, the next day it is another way. We are swept about as the Spirit blows us, always changing and needing to be open to new roles.
