“The work of Lent is to face the unconscious values that underlie
the emotional programs for happiness and to change them.
Hence the need of a discipline of contemplative prayer and action.” 

Thomas Keating, The Mystery of Christ

 

I have climbed up to the highest that is in me, and see,
the Word is far, far above.
I have plumbed my own depths,
and the Word was far deeper than that.
I have looked outward, I saw the Word far beyond.
I looked inward, the Word was further in still.
And now I know what I have read is true:
that in this One we live and move and have our being (Acts 17: 28).
But blessed is the one in whom [s]he has Divine being, who lives for God
and is moved by God

Bernard of Clairvaux, Sermon 74, Song of Songs
