C. S. LEWIS DAILY: OCTOBER 5

TO RHONA BODLE, who had written Lewis of her upcoming confirmation: On not expecting remarkable sensations connected to holy activities.

9 November 1949

Congratulations. You are daily in my prayers.

Caveat [let her beware!]—don’t count on any remarkable sensations, either at this or your first (or fifty first) Communion. God gives these or not as He pleases. Their presence does not prove that things are especially well, nor their absence that things are wrong. The intention, the obedience, is what matters.

From The Collected Letters of C.S. Lewis, Volume II
Compiled in Yours, Jack
