what the soul bears

“A soul which does not practice the exercise of prayer is very like
a paralyzed body which, though possessing feet and hands,
makes no use of them.”

St. Alphonsus Liguori


(bait fish minnow became a bigger fish’s snack / Julie Cook / 2021)

“If the soul will analyze the desire it has of happiness,
and the idea of happiness that presents itself to it,
it will find that the object of this idea and of this desire
is only and can only be God.
This is the impression that the soul bears in the depths of its nature;
this is what reason will teach it if it will only reflect a little,
and this is what neither prejudice nor passion can ever entirely efface.”

Fr. Jean Nicholas Grou, p. 4

    Just imagine. An invitation to come talk to the King. Prayer! And how oft we (I) procrastinate putting “stuff” ahead of my appointment times. thanks for the reminder of this blessing.
