Fr. Robert Bengry: Thy Will Be Done
Doing the will of God is what we aim to do, but how does one know what God’s will actually is? Discerning that seems like an impossible, or an arrogant enterprise. But it’s not: you are made in the image of God, through Holy Baptism you’re a part of His mystical body... by your Confirmation you have been strengthened in the gifts of the Holy Ghost. You have also been given a road map: the Church and the Holy Scriptures. The most difficult, it would seem, is to take time to listen to God through prayer and time spent with Him in Adoration.
To do God’s most Holy will is what we seek to do, and in some ways it’s not rocket science: Jesus said love God with all we’ve got and all we are... and to love our neighbour as ourself. So that's a good place to start I suppose.
