  • Saturday of the Second Week of Lent

Day by Day Through Lent: Day Fourteen

He was transfigured before their eyes ...

“There are as many ways to pray as there are moments in life. Sometimes we seek out a quiet spot and we want to be alone; sometimes we look for a friend and we want to be together, Sometimes we like a book; sometimes we prefer music. Sometimes we want to sing out with hundreds; sometimes whisper with only a few. Sometimes we want to say it with words, sometimes with deep silence.

In all these moments, we gradually make our lives more of a prayer and we open our hands to be led by God, sometimes even to places we would rather not go.”

Henri Nouwen
