St. Gaspar on Prayer

With today's Gospel it seem fitting to recall the tremendous gift prayer is. Gaspar would remind us that we accomplish everything through prayer; it is our anchor and our key to heaven.

"Let us offer prayers and let us become saints." 1820

"The more one prays, the more good can be done." 1821

"Let us develop everything by the use of prayer." 1821

"Prayers, and we shall see what the will of God is." 1823

"I prefer to pray than to speak" 1824

"Let us give life to everything through prayer, fons omium bonorum." 1825

"The fire of love which is acquired through prayer..." 1826

"...for everything comes about through prayer." 1827

"All is to be decided through prayer." 1831

Thanks for these lovely quotes. How nice to hear from St. Gaspar. I heard a good homily on prayer on the First Sunday of Lent. The focus was on contemplative prayer emphasizing silence and listening. I'm sure that St. Gaspar was no stranger to this most satisfying form of prayer.

Yes, the quotes are great.

The new colors on the comments are really hard on the eyes though -- black text and blue hypertext links on a dark red background are really tough to read!
