I have just finished reading Sister Wendy on Prayer. It is a lovely looking book with well-spaced type and beautiful colour illustrations of some paintings to which she refers. The beginning of the book is actually about her life by David Willcock. The part about prayer is deceptively simple and accessible to all seeking reassurance about or guidance for their prayer lives.
Here is a wee quote regarding Lent:
In Lent, how much easier to give up wine or chocolate than seriously tackle our impatience. A friend of mine who was prepared to fast most rigorously in Lent was horrified when I suggested daily mass and half an hour’s prayer instead. That she shrank from, compared to the athletic glory of a penitential fast. It is always not what we do, but why we do it. And our motive must always come from fixing our eyes solely on Jesus.
