The Truth

“It is an arrogance that allows Christians to so believe that their mental understanding of things is anywhere close to that of Jesus. Jesus said, “I am the Truth” (John 14:6) I think the intended effect is this: If Jesus is the Truth, then you probably aren’t.” – Richard Rohr

Prayer

“”prayer” has often been trivialized by making it a way of getting what you want… It is not a technique for getting things, a pious exercise that somehow makes God happy, or a requirement for entry into heaven. It is much more like practicing heaven now.” – Richard Rohr
