on prayer | 11

"The habit of prayer, as I see it, would mean a continual anxiety with regard to prayer, a fight, a struggle. It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man. Your face - you don't mind if I tell you? - looks worn by prayer . . . "

(Georges Bernanos, A Diary of a Country Priest)
