“In all areas of our life, prayer is the one where we can lest afford to be complacent. We may spend regular times in jogging, exercising, and dieting for the sake of our bodies, but refuse to make time for prayer for the sake of our souls.
We dedicate enormous effort toward developing our professional skills through expensive education, yet our time and our communion with God has become a lost art and a rejected relationship.”
Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will – all that I have and call my own, You have given it to me. To you, Lord, I return it. Do with it what you will. Give me only your love and your grace. That is enough for me.
-Ignatius of Loyola
