A Franciscan Blessed Advice On Prayer

"Prayer is the beginning, the middle, and the end of all good; prayer enlightens the soul, and enables it to discern between good and evil.  Every sinner ought to pray daily with fervor of heart; he should pray to God humbly to give him a perfect knowledge of his own miseries and sins, and of the benefits which he has received and still receives from the good God.  How can a person know God who does not know how to pray?"

(Golden Sayings, Blessed Brother Giles of Assisi)
