Not content to live on the surface

Eating, drinking, shopping or buried in entertainment

Aware of a hollow within

Thirsty for more of God’s presence.

Searching for meaning.

Empty, even though  ’saved’

It drove me to

I stepped out in faith,

Letting go of old prejudices against Catholics


If the Eucharist really was the Body of Christ

Then I needed to ,eat, share

Trusting in the witness of millions of saints who had gone before me

Embracing the unknown,

The mysteries

Walking into the Unknown

To discover that

Mystery is liberating

 1447,  Fra Angelico, 1447, Fra Angelico,



Embraced by a Heavenly Mother

Surrounded by a cloud of witnesses

Plugged into a Mystical Body

About William Ockham

I am a father of two with eclectic interests in theology, philosophy and sports. I chose the pseudonym William Ockham in honor of his contributions to philosophy, specifically Occam's Razor, and its contributions to modern scientific theory. My blog ( explores Ignatian Spirituality and the intersection of faith, science and reason through the life and writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (pictured above).

    The scriptural basis and the beauty of the liturgy lured me and the strong presence of the Holy Spirit kept me returning. I also find the mystery liberating because there is freedom in not having to explain everything and not having to know everything but being enabled to trust and rest in God. Thank you for sharing these powerful words.
