…the meaning of prayer—I tell God what I know He knows in order that I may get to know it as He does.
Our deepest freedom rests not in our freedom to do what we want to do but rather in our freedom to become who God wills us to be. --James Finley
A wonderful way to think and pray about the life to which you’ve been entrusted is to face into the certainty of your own death. The only thing uncertain about death is how and when we will die.
Br. Curtis Almquist, SSJE
I pray for faith to believe in the ultimate victory of Thy Holy Spirit over disease and death and all the powers of darkness.
So I say to you, walk with the wind, brothers and sisters, and let the spirit of peace and the power of everlasting love be your guide.

Br. David Allen, SSJE
