Prayer as Presence
Our life took the path of the Lord
when we discovered
And the first thing we learned
was that we were not able to pray.
So, since that moment, we began to desire
with all our hearts
to learn to pray.
And God, with all His goodness, taught us.
Praying is sharing time with God,
wishing Him to live in our hearts
and thinking and hoping for what He likes.
Every day, we receive His word
and always bring it with us.
Eucharist allows us to receive Jesus within us.
The Liturgy of the Hours introduces us
to the Communion of Saints.
The Rosary is our request to Mary,
to Her tenderness and maternity.
Thus, we revive within us
the presence of God the Father,
the Son and the Holy Ghost.
We watch Him and He watches over us.
We always praise Him:
«You, Lord, are good,
do of me as you like, help me, mercy, mercy».
Thus, our day
is marked by hours of prayer
that mingle with life:
pray and act, pray and love,
pray and enjoy silence,
pray and work, pray and listen.
Other presences help us
to keep prayer alive:
that of angels, of patron saints,
of many good friends who, both on earth and in heaven,
continue to pray with us and for us.
«So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.» (Luke 11, 9).
«And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.» (John 14, 13-14).
