“Absolutely unmixed attention is prayer.”
Simone Weil in Gravity and Grace.
The next few days threaten to be very busy, don’t we know it. Time to sit, stand, or kneel at prayer may be hard to find, so think on these words of Simone Weil. Absolutely undivided attention is not totally beyond us, in fact we may be absolutely attentive to a great number of tasks to prepare for the feast; giving ourselves to such a task is a moment of creative grace, a moment of prayer.
Absolutely unmixed attention is prayer.
