is a transliteration of the Greek word, εγερσις, which has the meaning of being roused to life. Thus, it is my hope that what you find on this blog will empower, arouse, stimulate, excite, and animate your life--your soul, your spirit--the wholeness of who you are.

St. Joseph's Dream

Joseph's dream message is one of comfort, one of affirmation, one of direction. As a spiritual director, I like the idea of dreams as spiritual direction. Here God uses a dream to assure Joseph that his original desire to marry Mary is still viable. Apparently, Joseph was paying attention and married into God's future. For those who would pay attention, how might a dream affirm our righteous desires and invite us into God's future?
