Quote of the Week on Prayer
I've been thinking of this quote ever since I read it a few years back. It grips me and challenges my paradigm of prayer in a really refreshing way. It brings prayer into a visionary futuristic orientation. Why not?
"Prayer and meditation have an important part to play in opening up new ways and new horizons. If our prayer is the expression of a deep and grace-inspired desire for newness of life--and not the mere blind attachment to what has always been familiar and “safe”--God will act in us and through us to renew the Church by preparing, in prayer, what we cannot yet imagine or understand. In this way our payer and faith today will be oriented toward the future which we ourselves may never see fully realized on earth."
Thomas Merton, Contemplation in a world of Action.
