The convictions acquired in prayer are the only ones that do not collapse. The reason is, as Charles de Foucauld tells us, this: to pray is to think of God and to love him. In the light of the Truth, in the fire of Love, decisions become realities. But that only if the recourse to God is continual. If not, you will find yourself again in the dark. One day passed all the time in continual prayer is like a day surrounded by illuminated fog. The soul expands in prayer. To be small before God: that is prayer.
Tomás Morales Pérez SJ (1908–1994)
