Today is the 25th anniversary of the death of Karl Rahner, SJ.
"If we are not supposed to cease praying, then perhaps one shouldn't cease speaking about prayer; speaking about it as well and as poorly as it given to one." - from the forward to The Need and The Blessing of Prayer
However well or poorly I do it - prayer or writing about prayer - Rahner's writing gives me hope that it is of value.
The photo is of my desk, on which no less than three of Fr. Rahner's tomes are resting at the moment. Can you tell I'm writing?
