Example text

1 God wants the glad soul who really speaks, saying what is really on the mind and in the heart, not a dull recital of those only too-familiar formalities, the set speeches laid down by the 'authorities', confident that they know exactly what God wants to hear. Have pity on the divine ears -- all those dull prayers, those boring hymns, those dry sermons filled with unctuous phrases! In this full speech, this primary speech -- meaning a speech that is of first importance and absolutely basic to our humanity -- we find a sufficient asceticism.

In prayer we speak to and of ourselves, of what lies heavy on our minds, of what rumbles in fear at the pit of our stomachs, of the grudges and resentments we hold behind our eyes below the surfaces of our outward being. We speak what we have to say, whatever that is, and however we are moved to say it. The saints give us tremendous help in outlining patterns of prayer, teaching us by example and by instruction how to move from verbal prayer, spoken with our lips out loud, to the mental prayer we say in our minds silently.

The 'service of the spirit', as Rudolf Otto points out in a memorable essay on 'The Battle between Flesh and Spirit', is one in which the flesh -another way of saying 'the world' -- is not turned away from or forbidden, but rather 'itself becomes spiritual'. ' 1 Thus the prayerful life never produces withdrawal from self or from other into some cheery, cosy haven of private chats with the divine. Prayer exposes, strips bare, and yet brings us ever more consciously and constantly into the world's life, into the deep wounded heart of the world.
