“We are what we are in prayer: there is no success or failure–just as what we see in the mirror is what we are. If we do not like what we see, there is no point in throwing out the mirror. That changes nothing. If we do not like the self we discover when we try to pray, the solution is not to stop praying. What we have to do is to turn our dissatisfaction into prayer so that in time things may change a little.”
Australian Trappist monk and author, Father Michael Casey OCSO
