The Cross of the Contemplative

I am a contemplative by nature. My favorite place (other than on my knees at Mass) is my home. If I had my preference, I would stay at home every day and contemplate spiritual things. Then, when I felt really adventurous, I would hide away with my computer and write my thoughts. If I really felt like taking a risk, I would post the thoughts on the computer or send them to an editor for review.

You see, I simply love being a reclusive Catholic writer. But God sometimes asks me to step out of my comfort zone. Like He did today.

Contemplatives are used to praying for all those active in the faith. We lift you before the Throne. But sometimes, we need your prayers. Like I do today.

So, dear active ones, if you would, please say a prayer for me today as I step out of my comfort zone and do something new and a little adventurous for me.
