A house of prayer

November 20, 2015 6:00 am

“It is written, My house shall be a house of prayer, but you have made it a den of thieves.” (LK 19: 46)

Prayer time is time to know each other better, to “hear His voice” and “to follow Him.” Prayer time also helps us to understand ourselves better, to meet our limits and weaknesses,to bring us under God’s love, and to trust Him, not ourselves. Our houses could be and “shall be houses of prayer” because marriage and family is a natural environment for prayer, when we meet God’s vocation and our response, always based on “hear” and “follow.”

“My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord; I know them, and they follow me.” (Gospel Acclamation)
