Whatever our bodies may be doing, we should a the same time continually life up our minds to God which is the most acceptable form of prayer. For no matter which way we may turn our steps, as long as our minds are turned to God, we clearly are not turned away from him who is present everywhere. ~~Saint Thomas More~~
I find these words comforting today. I often find myself busy and don't have or take the time for quiet reflection. But reading these words of Saint Thomas More bring me consolation. If the purpose of my action is done in conjunction with the love of God it is a prayer. If anxiety or worry cause me discomfort, I can find consolation in the action of offering it to God in prayer. Oh my, what treasure this is!
Thanks be to God!
