What is that one thing in your life that brings you closer to God?

Maybe it happens for you while enjoying a special moment with your child. Or working in your garden. Or helping someone in need. Or sitting in silence during eucharistic adoration. Or while teaching, painting, running, playing music or taking a walk through nature.

Many of us have our special moments and situations when we feel closest to God, when we feel his presence more keenly, more deeply. For you, what is that one thing in your life that brings you closer to God—and why? What is a favorite moment in your life when you knew God was there for you?
