Origen, prayer and liturgy

Zadok has a very interesting post gleaned from his reading of Origen's treatise On Prayer. Reading the excerpts Zadok has provided does make one think that then-Cardinal Ratzinger had much of this treatise fresh in his memory when he wrote his The Spirit of the Liturgy. If you haven't read that book yet, do yourself a favor and do so soon - your experience of prayer and at Mass will never be the same.
