“We must come to our prayer the way a child takes a drink of water. We must sit in prayer in the simplicity with which the reflection of a cloud sets weightlessly upon the surface of some secluded pond. Our prayer is not an identity-giver. It does not embellish or add a single ounce to the weight of the prize-grabbing ego.”

~ James Finley, Merton’s Palace of Nowhere

Painting by Camille Pissaro
