The Question Box – 2
Question: What do you do all day?
People often ask this. The answer to that is We try to turn everything into prayer. We take the ordinary things of everyday living and we try to transform them into prayer. We try to turn housework into prayer, to turn garden work into prayer, to turn laughter and conversation into prayer. And most of all, we try to turn prayers into prayer, for saying prayers is only the doorway to prayer, which is to look at the hidden face of God.
Do you ever wonder what it is like to be a Carmelite Nun? To live in a cloister? To spend your days seeking the Face of God?
