John Paul II quote of the day (Aug. 1)

What is prayer? It is commonly held to be a conversation. In a conversation there are always an "I" and a "thou" or "you." In this case the "Thou" is with a capital T. If at first the "I" seems to be the most important element in prayer, prayer teaches that the situation is actually different. The "Thou" is more important, because our prayer begins with God.

A quote from Mother Teresa echoes this thought of John Paul II: "I always begin my prayer in silence, for it is in the silence of the heart that God speaks.----we need to listen to God because it's not what we say but what He says to us and through us that matters."
