“Praying is not repeating as a parrot some phrases, it’s being humble, recognizing ourselves as sons, resting in The Father, trusting Him. This is the first attitude: trust and confidence, like a child towards his parents; knowing that God remembers you and takes care of you”.
(Papa Francesco, 2017)
“The spirit of constant prayer, fundamental expression of intimacy with God, finds its privileged food in the Sacred Scriptures, in the Liturgy and in all the forms of prayer that the Church recommends and the Institute proposes, avoiding all sterile formalism”.
(Costituzioni, cfr art 43)
“Prayer not as a law imposed from the outside but as an irrepressible need for life: breath, heartbeat of a life that is essentially a communion with the Trinity from which it originates and to which it is destined to return”.
“What is prayer really? It is above all dialogue, personal relationship with God”.
