Body and soul

What I miss most about being a regular Christian is the thing I always had the most difficulty with - the practice of prayer.

Victor Hugo wrote, 'There are thoughts which are prayers. There are moments when, whatever the posture of the body, the soul is on its knees.'

My problem was not, was never, how to pray, but how to stop praying. And so it remains. My soul is still on its knees.
