Father Terry’s Non secular Stuff: The Stage


Some individuals assume that prayer is sort of a stage supervisor who’s placing on a play.  The supervisor makes area on the stage by which to do the manufacturing.  Then the supervisor writes the play, directs the manufacturing, the lighting, the sound, and hopes that each one this work will make for a profitable play.  That is the concept that prayer is all about what we do and the way effectively we do it.  Success is dependent upon us if we need to get something out of the prayer manufacturing.  In reality, prayer is extra about merely having an empty stage, freed from muddle.  God does the manufacturing, and it’s by no means the identical play or prayer from in the future to a different.  So first we make the time to search out the place for our prayer after which we let go of the muddle in our thoughts and coronary heart, similar to resentments.  Centering Prayer is a technique of doing this.  My thoughts is all the time placing on performs.  I’m the hero.  The highlight is on me.  All others are supporting forged.  However that is by no means prayer.  No humility in my performs.
