The Perpetual Prayer of the Soul
We can only pray the way prayer is supposed to be when we recognize that in fact
the soul is always praying.
Without stop, the soul soars and yearns for
its Beloved. It is at the time of outward prayer, that the perpetual prayer of
the soul reveals itself in the realm of action.
This is prayer's pleasure and joy, its glory and beauty. It is like a rose, opening its elegant petals
towards the dew, facing the rays of the sun as they shine over it with the sun's light.
