Praying in solitude

“Once when Jesus was praying in solitude, and the disciples were with him, he asked them, ‘Who do the crowds say that I am?’” (LK 9: 18)

“Praying in solitude” brings good questions and brings good answers. It is good for us when we can organize our time and protect some time for “praying in solitude.” Solitude is never empty, without meaning, just nothing. Solitude is more like a blank sheet of paper, which gives us the potential to write or draw something. God is always with us, and His love is always with us and protecting us. With God’s presence and God’s love, we can ask the right questions and receive the right answers. 

“The Son of Man came to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Gospel Acclamation)
