Prayer: Thomas Merton

Every moment and event of every person’s life plants something in the soul. For just as the wind carries thousands of seeds, so each moment brings with it seeds of spiritual vitality that come to rest in the minds and wills of people. Most of these seeds perish because we are not prepared to receive them: for such seeds as these cannot spring up anywhere except in the good soil of freedom, spontaneity, and love.
