"I always begin my prayer in silence, for it is in the silence of the heart that God speaks."
Then she ends with the parable of the sheep and the goats, Matth

I do not know how the full version reads, but the selections have been so pared down that the entire book reads almost like a series of one liners.

I purchased this in audio via Audible. It is gorgeous. Mother is so gracious, wise and full of love. You can hear the smile in her words. The narrator is truly excellent. She sounds quite similar to Mother herself. I fall asleep listening to these reflections every night.
