For your contemplation: "You realize that prayer takes us beyond the law. When you are praying you are, in a certain sense, an outlaw. There is no law between the heart and God. The law is outside our intimate relationship with God and if you bring a law into the intimate relationships with God, you mess things up. Between the soul and God there are no laws. But that is not a natural situation: it is the result of redemption, the result of Christ." Thomas Merton.
St. Paul's is located at 625 C St. on the edge of the EWU campus.
