Taking a break from focusing on what’s wrong with the world to meditate on prayer. From Denys Turner’s Julian of Norwich, Theologian:
It is in prayer that eternity and time meet with the contingency of human desire. Prayer is a practice of interpreting human desire, a practice that draws us back through the tangled thickets of wants and needs as we experience them to our truest love and to where we are most truly ourselves. And as eternity is mediated by time in the contingency of desire, so desire is transformed by the eternity it mediates. What I most truly want is also that which is already given (168).
