"A Person of Prayer" from Joan Chittister, from Essential Writings


..."When, in prayer, we come to discover God’s universal love we suddenly realize 
that God does not take sides, that we have no priority on God alone. 
We finally understand that the God we seek is the God of the world and so, to seek that
 God, we must develop hearts as big as the world ourselves..

To develop a cosmic heart is a moment of profound transformation.
 We can never be the same again. 
We are beyond the boundaries we have created to separate the human race
 into my race and theirs...."
–from Joan Chittister: Essential Writings, selected by Mary Lou Kownacki
 and Mary Hembrow Snyder
