Rest Stops

Prayer is like a rest stop as we motor through the day.  Now and again we need to take the foot off the pedal and sit quietly to stretch our soul.  No music, no tapes, no GPS and no talking.  Just quiet stillness to keep us able to go on with the journey in a sane and balanced way.  Now and again, I need to go in for a tuneup, a day of reflection to keep me in good shape.  We can so easily run ourselves down and then things don't work so well.  I have found it so.


  1. What a wonderful way to describe prayer! Thanks Fr. Terry! Sometimes I forget how delicious is that rest.

  2. I agree. I played nine holes this morning with brother and friends and thought I had died and gone to heaven, but now a quiet 20 with silence and gratitude for all the gifts given.
    Go Giants!
