Praying with Nicolas Barré


When the tide rises, the waters of the sea flow back into the river, and the waters of the river, when they first meet, are carried away by the abundance of the waters of the sea.


So when our own will meets God's will, let us follow it immediately and leave our natural inclination to surrender to the action of grace. By living faithfully in this way, our own will will be consumed little by little, and finally it will be happily immersed and become one with that of God...


Nicolas Barré
