Real reality


The life of the spirit, by integrating us in the real order established by God, puts us in the fullest possible contact with reality – not as we imagine it, but as it really is.

— Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island


No darkness at all


This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light and in him is no darkness at all.

1 John 1:5, Ignatius Bible

Poetry prayer Prayers

A prayer for eternal life

This is a prayer I go to when I feel the need to get back to the basics of being a child of God, of being the light of the world, of becoming all flame. (Yes, I should pray this every day…I really should.)

I hope it is a help and blessing to you.
