Mystical Mondays: Admiration, All Things, Results




Translations by Daniel Ladinsky



GOD'S ADMIRATION

God's Admiration for us is infinitely greater
than anything we can conjure up
for Him.

St. Francis of Assisi


IN ALL THINGS

It was easy to love God in all that
was beautiful.

The lessons of deeper knowledge, though, instructed me
to embrace God in all
things.

St. Francis of Assisi


  THE RESULT OF PRAYER

The result of prayer is life.

Prayer irrigates the
earth and
heart.

St. Francis of Assisi

  1. I just read a lovely reflection today by Karl Rahner SJ on prayer and ritual irrigating the soul...

    1. Michelle ... I tried to read the Rahner book you gave me, but I may have been too tired at the time. You speak often of him, I need to give it a second shot.

  2. Prayer is attention. Attention is love.

    Thank you for sharing these.

  3. These are truly lovely, moving poems. In a way, they feel as though they could be contemporary instead of centuries old. Thank you so very much for this post and the former posts with poems from St. Francis of Assisi.
