There is no soul which is not bound to pray




There is no soul which is not bound to pray
Prayer. – A soul arms itself by prayer for all kinds of combat. In whatever state the soul may be, it ought to pray. A soul which is pure and beautiful must pray, or else it will lose its beauty; a soul which is striving after this purity must pray, or else it will never attain it; a soul which is newly converted must pray, or else it will fall again; a sinful soul, plunged in sins, must pray so that it might rise again. There is no soul which is not bound to pray, for every single grace comes to the soul through prayer. ---Sr. Faustina’s Diary 146
At times people will find themselves in situations that are detrimental to their lives on many levels. When I speak to a retreatant in a situation that he or she feels backed into a corner, I tell them that they must never stop praying. Prayer is a deep connection with God; prayer will bring hope and eventually find a way out of the situation. Or if not, strength will be given, even in the midst of deep interior suffering. The most important time to pray is when one feels alienated from self, others, and God, for it is then that grace is readily available. For to pray in such times, in trust, has to come from deep within, a place that only God sees, and in that choice, freedom grows and one's ability to begin over once again……Jesus said to Sister Faustina: “The more a soul knows of its sins and weaknesses, the more right it has to my mercy”……so fear is useless what is needed is trust.
Be like Peter on the waters, when he looked to Jesus he was able to stay above the raging sea when he looked at his feet, he doubted and began to sink…..yet he called on the Lord and he lifted him up. You are loved beyond your comprehension, never forget that and live in faith, hope, and love. ---Br.MD
