One who prays much prevails much.

~ Matshona Dhliwayo ~

…there is the error of those Christians who separate the.. Gospel demands from their personal relationship with the Lord, from their interior union with him, from openness to his grace. For [the] great saints, mental prayer, the love of God and the reading of the Gospel in no way detracted from their passionate and effective commitment to their neighbours; quite the opposite.

Pope Francis
Gaudete et Exsultate, 100

 

Lord,
help me to listen
to your voice
in the midst of my busy day, so that I may
respond fully to
the demands
of the Gospel.
Amen.
