To Build Your Own House

Richard Rohr – What the Mystics Know

To pray is to build your own house.  To pray is to discover the Someone else is within your house.  To pray is to recognize that it is not your house at all.  To keep praying is to have no house to protect because there is only One House.  And that One House is everybody’s Home.

Psalms 133:1-3 “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down on the collar of his robe. It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.”


What would life be like if everyone lived together in unity and this house was everybody’s house?
