We, on the other hand, often just jump to conclusions, play to the crowd, debate about who's right and who's wrong, organize discussion and action groups and committees, write long articles for and against, and preach lengthy sermons (sorry!)
Water is the most humble element of God's creation, and the most powerful. The Sacrament of Confession renews the purity of the humble water of our baptism that, too often, we have allowed to become turkey and dark. The Sacrament of Confession cleanses the water, washes the lens of our soul, so that we can clearly see with all the power and clarity of the eyes of Christ. Only when we can see anew, only then can we offer this cleansing grace to a world often trapped in the maze of darkness and chaos.
So what is our soul's prayer? I want to see Christ face to face and see with His eyes. I want to see what He alone can see, the restoration of a new heaven and a new earth. (cf. Dante's Paradiso 30:88-94)
