THAT'S MY WORLD TUESDAY # 16

Photo by Sailor Girl, illustrating the commentary of today's Gospel. A contribution to «[That's my World Tuesday]».
«Prayer is a heart to heart with God... Prayer that has been carried out well touches God's heart and prompts him to answer us. When we pray, let it be our whole being that turns towards God: our thoughts, our heart... The Lord will be moved to incline towards us and come to our help...Pray and hope. Do not get upset; worrying doesn't help. God is merciful and will hear your prayer. Prayer is our best weapon; it is the key that opens God's heart. You need to speak to Jesus less with your lips than with your heart». By Saint [Padre] Pio de Pietrelcina (1887-1968), Capuchin friar.
«A oração é um coração a coração com Deus. A oração bem feita toca o coração de Deus, incitando-O a ouvir-nos. Quando rezamos, que todo o nosso ser se volte para Deus: os nossos pensamentos, o nosso coração. O Senhor virá em nosso auxílio. Reza e espera. Não te agites; a agitação é inútil. Deus é misericórdia e há-de escutar a tua oração. A oração é a nossa melhor arma: é a chave que abre o coração de Deus. Deves dirigir-te a Jesus, menos com os lábios do que com o coração.» Por Santo [Padre] Pio de Pietrelcina (1887-1968), monge capuchinho (trad. Mediaspaul, Une pensée, p. 23).

Deus ouve sempre as tuas orações.Um dos farois preferidos D`Ele é o de
Santa Marta, por onde Ele gosta muito de passear e sempre que Ele anda por lá ouve-te sempre...
Um dia Bom para ti.

Grande JC! Obrigada! Já me tinha esquecido de que os meus gritos lancinantes se ouvem no Farol de Santa Marta!!! LOOL!

(rezei muito no banco encarnado que retrato neste post, que fica na Ilha do Pico... mas devo ter rezado mal...)

Um Excelente Dia para ti também!

Thanks for your sharing!
It make my eyes wet. And, that red bench, with the sea... I wish I was there.
Sometimes, I forgot to hear my silence, to link with our true essence: God. I use to say "I loose my awareness" . For me, to pray, is being aware that, all of us, are God, part of God!
A very deep post, this!
