Our Constitutions remind us to trust that our life, our praying have a "hidden, apostolic, fruitfulness." And so we are heartened by these words of the late Father André Louf as he describes the life of prayer:
That you have become a free human being, that your heart has begun to live and to sing, that the word of God is able to reverberate freely and frankly in your inmost center, is a source of light and power for anyone. What has happened to you is a fragment of salvation history, and has also happened to the Church and to the world. God has found a space here on earth where He can be Himself, where he can play and enjoy Himself.
