We, on a merry-go-round, feel that we are doing something, getting somewhere, because we are moving in a dizzy whirl of activity. Yes, activity is important, but as the result of reflection in prayer.
The understanding and wisdom that grows out of reflection and prayer overflows into action.
Prayer that does not produce virtuous action is an illusion.
