Prayer - #OnlineSaints

When you pray, you relate to God. You can do so in many ways: you will certainly be able to find a way of praying that suits you. Do not make things complicated: God understands you even without words. Your prayer does not need to be perfect: the most important thing is that you search for God and open your heart to him. 

Rose wanted to dedicate all her life to Jesus. She did not enter a convent, but continued to live ‘in the world’, caring for those who needed her help most. She made time every day to withdraw in a small cabin to pray and spend time with God. You too can start a life of prayer today.
