Stoking the fire ..

My sister and her husband live on a farm. They have a slow combustion stove in the kitchen and the lounge. On bitterly cold winter mornings the first thing they do on rising is to empty the ashes, rearrange the embers and put in some more wood.

I am thinking how morning prayer is like that - stoking the fire.


  1. If only lack of prayer made us feel bitterly cold - we'd be more motivated to pray more often!

  2. Good example Fr, and great point Janet, wouldn't that be wonderful...prayer = warmth!
    We could pick the season we'd like to live in!
