When you ask the Holy Spirit to help you pray well, put yourself for a moment in the presence of God.

St. Louis de Montfort (1673-1716)

God is more anxious to bestow His blessings on us than we are to receive them.

"Prayer can truly change your life. For it turns your attention away from yourself and directs your mind and your heart toward the Lord."

Pope John Paul II

"The Rosary is my favorite prayer. A marvelous prayer! Marvelous in its simplicity and its depth. In the prayer we repeat many times the words that the Virgin Mary heard from the Archangel, and from her kinswoman Elizabeth."

Pope John Paul II

"The Universal Church of Christ, and therefore each particular Church, exists in order to pray. In prayer the human person expresses his or her nature; the community expresses its vocation; the Church reaches out to God."

Pope John Paul II

"The truth of prayer is both the cause and the effect of a lifestyle which is placed in the light of the Gospel."

Pope John Paul II

"A Christian is a tabernacle of the living God."

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

"We must become holy, not because we want to feel holy, but because Christ must be able to live his life fully in us."

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

"This is the meaning of true love, to give until it hurts."

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

"All works of love are works of peace."

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

"You can pray while you work. Work doesn't stop prayer and prayer doesn't stop work. It requires only that small raising of the mind to Him."

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

"Everything starts from prayer."

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

"If we really want to pray, we must first learn to listen: for in the silence of the heart God speaks."

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

"Love to be true has to begin with God in prayer."

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

"God has created us to love and to be loved, and this is the beginning of prayer - to know that He loves me, that I have been created for greater things."

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

"When we contemplate God, we are made like unto God."

Julian of Norwich (14th cent.)

The renewal of marian piety and of the rosary apostolate is closely linked to renewal of interest in the Bible.

"... the rosary is being presented as a genuinely evangelical prayer and even as a way of teaching people how to ponder over the scriptures in prayer and faith."

"the rosary is very well adapted to teaching the life of faith."

"The rosary, which is a school of life open to the simplest of people, far from tying them down to the rudiments of the faith, leads them step by step along the paths of meditation, prayer and contemplation of the Lord. It teaches us to leave words behind when we pray."

We ought to be persuaded that what God refuses to our prayer, He grants to our salvation.

St. Augustine (354-430)

It is simply impossible to lead, without the aide of prayer, a virtuous life.

St. John Chrysostom (347-407)

As our body cannot live without nourishment, so our soul cannot spiritually be kept alive without prayer.

St. Augustine (347-430)
