The Individual and The Body

  • Even when we pray in solitude, we do not pray alone. By the spirit, we are connected to everyone else who prays and everyone else who longs to pray, or has a longing within them that they do not recognise or that they sense but cannot articulate. The individual is part of the Body. Jesus says yes to other people too. We learn from others, we celebrate one another, but we also learn the limits of other peoples’ compassion.
  • We learn where to place ourselves in prayer and work, how to place ourselves between, how to set ourselves aside so that we become fully focused on others. We gather wisdom, learn to speak, learn to speak to our time. We learn how to trust others, and how to trust God for the world.
