Prayer and Kenosis

Father Voillaume

In the course of centuries Christians have increasingly come to realize that their prayer like the prayer of Christ himself, and because of that prayer, is a work of adoration and intercession in the name of mankind. In our time this awareness has become more vivid than ever, and it has reached the point when many have come to feel that they must give concrete expression to this permanent commission to pray in the name of mankind by really sharing the circumstances of men’s lives.
René Voillaume LBJ (1905–2003)

  1. One reads this 3 times, and then if one is being attentive, nods. It is so something that we are sure of and/or have known, but which most of us cannot articulate. Stunning posts, here. I’m so thankful.
