Whatever the object
of my prayer,
I never pray
or worship you in vain;
the very act of praying
brings me rich reward.
Teach me then,
Holy Spirit,
to pray without ceasing,
that you may grant me
to rejoice unceasingly
in you.
--William of Saint Thierry

Lord, make my life
a prayer.
Make my whole life
a prayer.
Even the most
sinful parts.
For in asking
for forgiveness,
I am praying. --ES


Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean.
--Give Us This Day,
Antiphon Morning Prayer, 1/11/2019

But I must want to be clean
for if I do not wish it,
I will not be cleaned and then
I cannot be with you.

Lord, I want to be clean! --ES

"Lord Jesus, let me know myself and let me know You. Grant me the grace to follow You in Your sorrow--accepting all the sorrow of my life for Your sake." Every Day is a Gift, April 28th

Why should I follow the sorrows of Jesus. Because I am, with all of my sins, a part of the sorrows of Jesus.

Perhaps this is why I am drawn to the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary.

Wear the mask!
Wash your hands!
Maintain social distancing!
Pray for our leadership!

The Descent of the Holy Spirit
Catechism of the Catholic Church
Paragraph 767 "When the work which the Father gave the Son to do on earth was accomplished, the Holy Spirit was sent on the day of Pentecost in order that he might continually sanctify the Church."174 Then "the Church was openly displayed to the crowds and the spread of the Gospel among the nations, through preaching, was begun."175 As the "convocation" of all men for salvation, the Church in her very nature is missionary, sent by Christ to all the nations to make disciples of them.176

The Holy Spirit came to Mary and the Apostles as tongues of fire.

Listen to Be Heard
Listen to Be Heard

If we do not spend
quiet time with the Lord
so that we can
hear Him speaking,
we will not be able
to listen to what
He is telling us.

If we do not listen
to what the Lord
is telling us,
He will not listen
to what we
are asking of Him.
