Helen Losse : A yellow flower pops up : Poetry : May 2019

 

“The stillness of prayer is the most essential condition for fruitful action. Before all else, the disciple kneels down.”

— St. Gianna Molla

“God gives prayer growth precisely according to our degree of readiness for it. He forces no one. According as we are more or less receptive, He bestows more or less depth of communion. In the same manner, five hundred people in a parish church all hear the same sound waves during the homily, but they profit from it exactly as they are or are not disposed for the message. Jesus taught the same truth in his parable of the sower: from the word of God some hearers yield nothing at all, while others yield thirty or sixty or a hundredfold.”

— Fr. Thomas Dubay
