On Prayer….

“Prayer is, for me, an outburst from the heart; it is a simple glance darted upwards to Heaven; it is a cry of gratitude and of love in the midst of trial as in the midst of joy! In a word, it is something exalted, supernatural, which dilates the soul and unites to God. Sometimes when I find myself, spiritually, in dryness, so great that I cannot produce a single good thought, I recite very slowly a Pater or an Ave Maria; these prayers alone console me, they suffice, they nourish my soul.”

(St Thérèse of Lisiuex, daughter of Ss Louie and Zélie Martin, whose feast we keep on Tuesday 12 July)
