“But when you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret.  And your Father, who sees in secret, will repay you.”  Mathew 6:6

“Our life of contemplation shall retain the following characteristics:
—missionary: by going out physically or in spirit in search of souls all over the universe.
—contemplative: by gathering the whole universe at the very center of our hearts where the Lord of the universe abides, and allowing the pure water of divine grace to flow plentifully and unceasingly from the source itself, on the whole of his creation.
—universal: by praying and contemplating with all and for all, especially with and for the spiritually poorest of the poor.”
Mother Teresa, In the Heart of the World: Thoughts, Stories and Prayers

“Muddy water, let stand, becomes clear.” -Lao Tzu
