“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Luke 4:42




When daylight came, Jesus left the house

and made His way to a lonely place.


– Luke 4:42






Jesus was a busy man carrying out a Divine Mission.

and He too needed time to reflect quietly,

to pray privately,

to speak to the Father

away from interruptions, noise and distractions.


As in everything else, here too, He gives us good example.


We all need to find the time and a quiet place,

where we can pray and reflect.


St. Josemaria Escriva comments:

“You ask: To pray is to talk with God. But about what?


About what? About Him, about yourself:

joys, sorrows, successes and failures,

noble ambitions, daily worries, weaknesses!

And acts of thanksgiving and petitions:

and love and reparation…”

…and we will find peace and consolation and truth,

and that incomparable joy in the Lord!






Lord, lead me to that quiet place – everyday.


Come Holy Spirit,

I welcome You every day to take over my heart and my mind.

Remove everything that is not from You,

and fill me with Your love and Your peace.


Come Holy Spirit.
