Sub lumine aeternitatis
How often St. Dominic is presented under a star, or under a great light. When we live with the eyes of our heart fixed on our own will, we are torn and tossed between desires which are constantly changing, never satisfying. We are made for eternity, and when we fix our eyes on eternity, and unite our wills to the Eternal Will of God, the peace we desire but which escapes us when we live according to our own will, becomes accessible to us. We are instructed to pray like this "...thy will be done..." so let us retire with our agony to our interior Garden of Getshemane and pray "Not my will, but thine be done."
