about this collection

Prayer is how you get to know God. And in turn who you are—your identity in the Father’s love and the supernatural authority he has given you at your baptism. We should probably learn to do it well.

What can be more excellent than prayer; what is more profitable to our life; what sweeter to our souls; what more sublime, in the course of our whole life, than the practice of prayer!

Saint Augustine
