THOUGHTS ON PRAYER




READING SCRIPTURES

 

If you want the sacred writings to become sweet to you and the DIVINE COMMANDS to help you as they should, withdraw from worldly occupations for several hours to re-read the divine words in your homes and to dedicate yourselves entirely to God's mercy.

 

Merchants do not limit themselves to just one source of income; they look for many ways to increase their profits. Farmers sow more than one kind of seed in order to be able to provide enough food for themselves and their families.

 

Likewise, your spiritual profit should not be limited to hearing the divine lessons in church. At home, also, you should engage in sacred reading, even for several hours an evening. Thus, you will store spiritual wheat in the storehouse of your heart, and Scriptural pearls in the treasury of your soul.

 

St. Caesarius
