B16 Quote of the Week

The more the depths of our souls are directed to God, the better we will be able to pray.  The more prayer is the foundation of our entire existence, the more we will be men of peace.  The more we can bear pain, the more we will be able to understand others and open ourselves to them.  This orientation pervasively shaping our whole consciousness, this silent presence of God at the heart our thinking, our meditating, and our being, is what we mean by "prayer without ceasing".  This is ultimately what we mean by love of God, which is at the same time the condition and the driving force behind love of neighbor.

-Jesus of Nazareth, Pgs 129-130
