Saint Peter Julian Eymard: On Prayer

Contemplation and Prayer


 

 

 

 

“In order to succeed in it (prayer), it should be done when we first awaken, when our whole being is calm and recollected. We need to make our meditation before anything else.

“As far as possible, you should pray in quiet and silent devotion. Try to have a favorite topic of prayer, such as a devotion to the passion of Jesus, the Blessed Sacrament, awareness of the divine presence; go directly to Jesus without too much fuss.

 

“Before prayer begins, leave aside any duties which would distract you.”
