15th Day of Lent
Friday, March 9, 2012
In quiet moments of prayer I find the Truth within my soul.
To all those who are weary and sore oppressed and whose faith seems at times to prove inadequate, we say: Lay aside your profession of faith and your creed, your religious mottoes and affirmations, and devote some time to quiet meditation and contemplation of yourself.
Neither praying that God will make you a better person nor affirming that you are now perfect will enable you to be more than you were created to be. The great work of prayer and spiritual treatment helps us to release the hidden potential of our inmost selves to give expression to the Truth that is the very law of being.
Matthew 14:23 And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray.
