 Conference on Prayer by Abbot Marmion, O.S.B.
That is the beginning of the prayer of quiet; it can be affirmed that many souls, faithful to grace, attain to it.
During prayer itself, we ought not to disturb ourselves about the distractions we may happen to have, but remain faithful, and lead the mind gently back without violence, by the aid of a book if needful, to the subject that should be occupying us.
Prayer is, then, the expression, under the action of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, of the sentiments that result from our Divine adoption in Jesus Christ; and that is why it is accessible to every baptized soul of good will. /shnyves/marmion.htm   (9131 words)

 On "The Pangolin"
Grace, Moore insists, also includes time in which to pay a debt, referring to the "grace period." She might also have been thinking of those lines from the Lord's Prayer, "forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors." If this is her reference, then time to pay the debt is indeed grace.
It unites the grace of the architecture (patterned as "a monk and monk and monk") and the grace of the poem (with its pattern of repetitions).
She again uses graceful to describe the movement of the pangolin which is "the not unchain-like machine-like/form and frictionless creep of a thing/made graceful by adversities, con-/ /versities." Moore sees the pangolin as moving with a steady, methodical rhythm which suits its lifestyle which is filled with both difficulties and contradictions. /maps/poets/m_r/moore/pangolin.htm   (14780 words)

 A paper entitled Grace in Thomas Aquinas
This does not deny that the sacred humanity of Christ, the Church, the sacraments, prayer, suffering rightly borne, accidents, disasters, the good example of others are sources of grace.
Grace then is as a light which suffuses the essence of our being, more than a simple quality or habit, rather like a new nature from which flow out into the powers of our being the instilled virtues, theological, cardinal and moral.
This grace is first of all an elevating grace by which we perform actions and accomplish deeds oriented to our final blessedness; but also since the Fall a medicinal grace healing the wounds, or the corruption we have inherited or inflicted upon ourselves through our sinful and rebellious actions. /grace/western/scholars/lap1.htm   (14780 words)

Prayer is not a little habit pinned on to us while we were tied to our mother's apron strings; neither is it a little decent quarter of a minute's grace said over an hour's dinner, but it is a most serious work of our most serious years.

Theologian Reinhold Niebuhr's famous prayer ("God, give us grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, courage to change the things that should be changed, and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other") has, Sifton notes, the distinction of being the world's most misattributed text.
Although the Serenity Prayer is central throughout, this lovely book is just as concerned with the issue raised by the subtitle: faith and politics in times of peace and war -- namely, how to reconcile the gospel demand of 'love thy neighbor' with the often terrible realities of human nature.
