Learning:

“Our lives are fragmented. It is to this condition of fragmentation and alienation that Brother Lawrence speaks when he presents us with the practice of the presence of God. Brother Lawrence had a deep conviction that prayer is not saying prayers but a way of living in which all we do becomes prayer. We indeed are called not just to say prayers but to live a prayerful life.
For Brother Lawrence the practice of the presence of God was not a practice for a few moments a day, not even for a few hours a day. No, for him it was a practice that permeated every moment of his day. This simple but difficult way of Brother Lawrence is indeed a great challenge for us today….It is the way to God.” — HENRI NOUWEN
