"Thus this spiritual love will speak to Christ about a brother more than to a brother about Christ. It knows that the most direct way to others is always through prayer to Christ and that love of others is wholly dependent on truth in Christ." (36-37)
This sort of thinking really shakes me up. Wake up from your slumber, mortal: prayer is real. Why is this shocking? Because I've learned to get on my knees, let pious words bounce around inside my head, and call it "prayer."
