Writer's Wednesday - Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at his disposition, and listening to his voice in the depths of our hearts.


We must improve our prayer and, flowing from that, our charity toward others. It can be difficult to pray when we don't know how, but we can help ourselves through the use of silence.  Souls of prayer are souls of great silence.  The silence takes a lot of sacrifice, but if we really want to pray, we must be ready to take that step now.  Without this first step toward silence, we will not be able to reach our goal, which is union with God.

----Mother Teresa, Mother Teresa, Her Essential Wisdom, Edited by Carol Kelly-Gangi.
