Some thoughts on that fantastic way to speak to God – prayer! When we read stories like the one coming out of America about the doctor, Dr Gosnell, who is on trial for peforming late abortions and killing new borns, then we realise that prayer is our main form of attack for these horrendous sins that go on.
Prayer joined to sacrifice constitutes the most powerful force in human history.
-Blessed Pope John Paul II
True prayer is nothing but love.
Prayer is the inner bath of love into which the soul plunges itself.
-St John Vianney
If a man wants to pray, let him go and pray.
-the Rule of St Benedict
