For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.
~St. Therese of Lisieux
Catechism of the Catholic Church
teaches that prayer is a gift from God: a covenant relationship and communion between God and man in Christ (
CCC 2558 - 2565
Developing a vital prayer life is essential to the Christian life, and it can be compatible with everyday life, too - just 5 to 10 minutes of quiet time each day to start with is fine. You can pray right here and now, as you sit at your computer, using any of the prayers in the left-hand Section Navigation bar, or by visiting the
website to pray with the help of on-screen guidance and scripture chosen daily.
It is possible to offer fervent prayer even while walking in public or strolling alone, or seated in your shop,...while buying or selling,...or even while cooking.
~St. John Chrysostom
