In prayer . . . let us open our soul to the Lord so that he may come and inhabit our weakness, transforming it into power for the Gospel. . . . [T]he Greek verb with which Paul describes this dwelling of the Lord in his frail humanity is also rich in meaning; he uses episkenoo, which we may convey with “pitching his tent”. The Lord continues to pitch his tent in us, among us: he is the Mystery of the Incarnation. The divine Word himself, who came to dwell in our humanity, who wishes to dwell in us, to put up his tent in us to illuminate and transform our life and the world. ~Pope Benedict XVI
