NOTES AND QUOTE

Twenty - ninth  Sunday Year C

(Victor White) maintained that what people call distractions in prayer are just their real wants and concerns breaking in on the bogus wants and concerns that we think are the only suitable ones for prayer. If you get “distractions”, he said, take a good look at them and see what wants and needs they spring from and pray about these whatever they are. When you are really praying for what you really want you won’t be distracted the prayers of people in sinking ships are rarely troubled by distractions, they know what they want.
(Herbert McCabe)

Pray as if everything depended upon God and work as if everything depended upon you.
(St Augustine)

Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be the miracle.
(Phillips Brooks)
