My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples

“Them I will bring to my holy mountain and make joyful in my house of prayer; Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be acceptable on my altar, for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.” (IS 56: 7) 

Prayer is not an action only; it is more about relationship than action. It is how to be more and better connected with God rather than to do something for Him. Therefore, His “house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples” where everyone is loved and accepted. Like in our houses, we are together not for doing something, but to make a space for everybody’s growing, based on the mutual gift of self, a space where we develop our relationships and know ourselves better.

“Come, Lord, bring us your peace that we may rejoice before you with a perfect heart.” (Gospel Acclamation)
