ask, seek, knock

The Gospel today is that most encouraging of exhortations: "ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened." I tend to focus on the "asking" part (it's something I'm sort of good at!), but today it was the "knocking" that intrigued me. Because we knock precisely in order to enter. What we are "asking" and "seeking" when we knock is communion.

I am in agreement with you on the "asking" aspect. "Ask and you shall receive" (that your joy may be full), "Come to Me", "Whatsoever you shall ask the Father in my name will be given unto you".
Patience required.(my quote)
