Come away by yourselves ,
o a deserted place and rest awhile

Mark 6:31

In those days he departed
to the mountain to pray
and he spent the night
in prayer to God.

Luke 6:12

It says,
“He passed the whole night in prayer.”
A model is given to you.
A form is prescribed
which you must imitate.

St Ambrose (340-397)
Father and Doctor of the Church

Rest is in Him alone.
Man knows no peace in the world
but he has no disturbance
when he is with God.

St Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153)

It is impossible
to find a Saint
who did not take
the “two P’s” seriously –
Prayer and Penance.

St Francis Xavier (1506-1552)

To pray,
is to think about Jesus
and love Him.
The more we love,
the better we pray.

Bl Charles of Jesus de Foucauld (1858-1916)
