Waiting for God

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

To pray means to wait for the God who comes.

[God’s] coming is bound to his promise, not to our works or virtue.

God is thrust onward by his love, not attracted by our beauty.

[God] comes in moments when we have done everything wrong, when we have done nothing…when we have sinned.

(Carlo Carretto, The God Who Comes)
