BTP#12 Beginning to Pray w/ Dr. Anthony Lilles: Heaven In Faith Day 6 Prayer 2 by St. Elizabeth of the Trinity

Episode 12 Beginning to Pray:  “Heaven in Faith”  Day 6 Prayer 2 – “If your eye is single, your whole body will be full of light.

Dr. Anthony Lilles is a Catholic husband and father of three teaching Spiritual Theology at St. John Vianney Theological Seminary.  He teaches spiritual theology and spiritual direction to transitional deacons, and the spiritual classics to the men who enter the Spirituality Year, a year of prayer in preparation for seminary formation.  He is the author of the “Beginning to Pray” catholic blog spot.

From “Heaven in Faith: Day 6 Prayer 2” found in The Complete Works vol 1:

19. …What is this single eye of which the Master speaks but this “simplicity of intention” which “gathers into unity all the scattered forces of the soul and unites the spirit itself to God.  It is simplicity which gives God honor and praise; it is simplicity which presents and offers the virtues to Him.  Then, penetrating and permeating itself, permeating and penetrating all creatures, it finds God in its depths.
