Principles and Practices - March 10

Pray More Often

Our Christianity gets cut up into too many compartments. We must not be 're­ligious' only when bells are rung at Mass on Sundays; and on weekdays for three minutes between rising and dressing, undressing and going to bed. Outside these official exercises of piety God is just as lovable, just as easy of approach, and just as near.
