"Reflections..path to prayer" by James Turbo

"A man sits in an airline terminal for hours
feasting his eyes on those with destinations.
What a satisfaction to have a destination in life!
What a horror to drift aimlessly through life!

Have you ever stopped to think that Christ has delivered us from such a pitiable condition as that-
the condition of not being able to move effectively
toward a clear-cut goal.
Christ said: ‘I am the way' and ‘I am the light'.

It is by means of a path and light
that we can organise our movement.
By means of a path we can successfully make our way
through the woods;
by means of light we orient ourselves;
we can know where we are and where we must head for.

All this is to say that the coming of Christ into our life
endows it with a destination
and with the joyful hope of attaining it."
