CQOD: 03/11/07 -- de Sales: understanding and healing from prayer
Christian Quotation of the DayMarch 11, 2007
For through [Christ] we both have access in one Spirit to the Father.
-- Ephesians 2:18 (ESV)
Prayer opens the understanding to the brightness of Divine Light, and the will to the warmth of Heavenly Love—nothing can so effectually purify the mind from its many ignorances, or the will from its perverse affections. It is as a healing water which causes the roots of our good desires to send forth fresh shoots, which washes away the soul’s imperfections, and allays the thirst of passion.
... François de Sales (1567-1622)
Quiet time reflection:
Lord, You are making me whole.
