October 25, 1993 "..! These years I have been calling you to pray, to live what I am telling you, but you are living my messages a little. You talk,

August 25, 1996 "..! Listen, because I wish to speak to you and to invite you to have more faith and trust in God, who loves you immeasurably.

When true friendship with God is realized, no storm can destroy it. ..." 

July 25, 1997 "Dear children! Today I invite you to respond to my call to prayer. I desire, dear children, that during this time you find a corner for personal prayer. I desire to lead you towards prayer with the heart. Only in this way will you comprehend that your life is empty without prayer.

September 25, 1997 "..! Today I call you to comprehend that without love you cannot comprehend that God needs to be in the first place in your life.

OTHER QUOTATIONS etc. which may interest & be helpful

"Prayer is the raising of one's mind and heart to God or the requesting of good things from God." But when we pray, do we speak from the height of our pride and will, or "out of the depths" of a humble and contrite heart? He who humbles himself will be exalted; humility is the foundation of prayer, Only when we humbly acknowledge that "we do not know how to pray as we ought," are we ready to receive freely the gift of prayer. "Man is a beggar before God." ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church #2559

  • ". . . Prayer is the best weapon we have; it is the key to God's heart. You must speak to Jesus not only with your lips but with your heart. In fact on certain occasions you should speak to him only with your heart." ~ Padre Pio

  • "Brothers and sisters: The Spirit comes to the aid of our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes with inexpressible groanings. And the one who searches hearts knows what is the intention of the Spirit, because he intercedes for the holy ones according to God's will." ~ Rom 8:26-27

  • "God speaks in the silence of the heart. Listening is the beginning of prayer." ~ Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta

  • "Prayer wonderfully clears the vision; steadies the nerves; defines duty; stiffens the purpose; sweetens and strengthens the spirit." ~ S. D. Gordon

  • "Prayer is an end to isolation. It is living our daily life with someone; with Him who alone can deliver us from solitude." ~ Georges Lefevre

  • "If we would talk less and pray more about them, things would be better than they are in the world: at least, we should be better enabled to bear them." ~ John Owen

  • "The value of consistent prayer is not that He will hear us, but that we will hear Him." ~ William McGill

  • "Perhaps one reason God delays His answers to our prayers is because He knows we need to be with Him far more than we need the things we ask of Him." ~ Ben Patterson

  • “Accustom yourself gradually to carry Prayer into all your daily occupation -- speak, act, work in peace, as if you were in prayer, as indeed you ought to be.” ~ François Fénelon

  • "Prayer is powerful! It fills the earth with mercy. The mercy and clemency obtained through the power of prayer will always produce its generous and saving effects in people." ~ Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini  (1850-1917)

  • "When we pray, the voice of the heart must be heard more than that proceeding from the mouth." ~ St. Bonaventure

  • "Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at his disposition, and listening to His voice in the depths of our hearts." ~ Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997) Memorial day September 5

  • "When you pray, rather let your heart be without words than your words be without heart."

'May the peace and love of Jesus Christ be with us always.'
