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.”
From “Heaven in Faith” 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.
We would like to offer heartfelt thanks to Miriam Gutierrez for providing for us “the voice” of Blessed Elizabeth for this series
