Why prayer goes first

May 18, 2014 10:31 am

“It is not right for us to neglect the word of God to serve at table… we shall devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.” (Acts 6:2. 4)

Among many ways to serve the others, prayer and the ministry of the word are most important. Especially for us, priests, but not only. All believers are participants in the common priesthood. Putting prayer and God’s word in the first place helps me understand His love for me and my role in this world. Helps me be united with Him.

“I am the true vine and ou are the branches, says the Lord. Whoever remains in me, and I in him, bears fruit in plenty, alleluia” (Communion Antiphon).
