From Richard Rohr


The experience of the Holy Spirit is an undeserved and thrilling transformation.  It’s being grabbed by God and lifted into a new relationship with Reality itself.

It is a new freedom to give myself away, and to receive back infinitely more than the little that I thought I gave away.

The highest form of self-possession is the capacity to give oneself away.  It is the highest form of freedom; it is the perfect act of freedom.

Adapted from Great Themes of Scripture: New Testament, p. 91
(out of print, see New Great Themes of Scripture (CD))

Starter Prayer:
    Holy Trinity,
create in me
a new heart.
