Thomas Merton -

"How I pray is breathe," wrote Thomas Merton.

Roger Lipsey in his article on Thomas Merton in Parabola gives this quote from Merton's journal in the spring of 1961. "The great work of sunrise again today. The awful solemnity of it. The sacredness. Unbearable without prayer and worship. I mean unbearable if you really put everything else aside and see what is happening!"

See each day, "the great work of sunrise." "Put everything else aside and see what is happening."

That should solar power your day.
