“The Virgin at Prayer” (detail) by Sassoferrato

“More important than petition is adoration, for in it truth will come to us—the truth of life. Everyday cares will find their proper place and our standards will become rightly adjusted. This truth will comfort us; it will put in order what the entanglements and illusions of life have thrown into confusion. It will heal us spiritually so that we may begin anew.” (Fr. Romano Guardini; The Art of Praying)
