The second part of the spiritual life is to participate in the purposes of God in history. We live in a theological consciousness of life shaped by the mystery of the Triune God reconciling all of life to himself. . . . There is a straightforward simplicity about this theological spirituality. It is not speculative. . . . It simply proclaims that God has taken the initiate to unite us and the world to himself and calls on us to see and live our life out of this vision of reality.
