Prayer is walking up to an abyss, looking down, and being unable to see the bottom for there is none. You spend years balancing on the edge, almost jumping in, then retreating. At some moment, the hunger becomes too great and the thirst too flaming. You jump. You jump into the abyss, only to discover that there is no abyss, only God and his love for you. For a moment, you catch your breath in his arms. Then once again, because he loves you, he seems to elude you, so that again you might go forth to seek him. ~Catherine De Hueck Doherty
