CHAPTER 4 – How to Live Our Lives - Part 4

And finally, never lose hope in God’s mercy. RB 4:74

At the end of what seems an endless list, Benedict gives us one final tool: we are never to lose hope in God’s mercy. The first tool was to love God and this last tool reminds us to never doubt God’s love. We are told once again that everything we do and all that we are is reliant on God. Benedict’s spirituality is a way of life for each day and every day. It takes tools; it takes practice; it takes a life-time.
