” We have to say things to people. The moment comes and passes, and then we are alone again.”
The question often comes, “Why do you pray?” A comment follows, “I know how hard you’ve been praying, and it seems God is answering your prayers. ” Then a reply, ” That’s not why I pray, I pray because I’m helpless, and I can’thelp myself, it flows out of me all of the time.”
The conversation continues. “My father died recently, I loved him very much.” Reply, “did he know that?” ” Yes, I think so.” Reply, ” We must say things to those we love. A moment comes and passes, and then we are alone again.”
Dialog from “Shadowlands”, Anthony Hopkins playing C.S. Lewis.
