Fr Jacques Philippe on Interior Prayer

| | Comments (3)

For the Staple-to-Forehead file:

The life of prayer is much deeper than the intelligence or the senses can perceive. Even when prayer is poor and distracted, provided that it is made with sincerity and faith, God can communicate secretly with the soul. He puts into it the treasures of light and the power of peace that is often made manifest at other times in life instead of just during prayer itself. And if one perseveres despite times of aridity, there will always be moments when God visits and makes his presence felt.


Ah, very beautiful and true. I am reading his book, Maintaining and Preserving Peace. This little book will go down as one of the best reads ever.

I am visiting from Fr Mark's blog.

How I need to hear this.
