Thought Of the Day


Draw near to God like a little child

Begin and end the day with prayer. Go to God as a child turns to its mother. If words don't come spontaneously to you then say, for example: “Come, Holy Spirit, guide me, protect me, enlighten my thoughts so I can pray.” Or even better, if you speak to the Virgin Mary, say: “Mary, Mother of Jesus, be a mother to me now and help me to pray.” When you pray, thank God for all his gifts: since all is his, all things are a gift he makes to us. Your soul is God's gift. If you are a Christian you can say the Lord's prayer; if you are a Catholic, in addition to the Our Father, your prayers are those of the “Hail Mary”, the Rosary, the Creed. If your family, or you yourself, have particular devotions, pray according to your own custom. If you truly put your trust in the Lord and in the power of prayer, you will rise above all your doubts and fears and that sense of solitude so many people feel.
