Merton’s Voice: One of the elders said: Pray attentively and you will soon straighten out your thoughts.

Merton, Thomas. The Wisdom of the Desert (New York: New Directions, 1960)  78.

Psalm 130: 1-2:

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord. Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications!

If you are bringing your offering to the altar and there remember that another has something against you, leave your offering there before that altar, go and be reconciled… (Matthew 5)

Nouwen’s Voice: …there is a …loneliness. God is calling you to deep, personal intimacy, an intimacy that is wonderful and very demanding. God asks you to let go of many things…you must live it with trust, standing tall. You must try to say, ‘Yes, I am lonely, but this particular loneliness sets me on the road to intimacy with God’.
