Update (October 2010)

There are books I keep at hand that I pick up from time to time, ever to find something new. So it was that I recently picked up Joan Chittister’s book The Breath of the Soul: Reflections on Prayer. I was particularly struck by her words in the section on realism. She writes:

The spiritually mature person does not rely on God for miracles. They rely on God for strength and courage, for insight and hope, for vision and endurance. They know that God is with them: they do not believe that God is an instrument for the comfort of human beings. (p.122)
