An Easy Way to Become a Saint - September 25

Chapter 10. Thoughts on Prayer

God hears every prayer

Still another most consoling thing about prayer is that God hears every prayer. Every prayer well said, as any ordinary Christian can say it, brings us back a great grace, a favor, though we may not see it.

True, God does not always give us exactly what we ask, because He sees that it would not be good for us, but then He gives us something better, which He knows is good for us.

Good business men, wise statesmen, great generals, place all their trust in prayer....

A Catholic "Bible" and the "Catechism of the Catholic Church, Second Edition" first printed in the US in March 2000 as the official text on Faith and Morals will help us to lead Saintly lives as well.
These are easy to read for anyone over age 15 and make great Christmas gifts not only for Catholics but for anyone who wants to know the true teaching of the Church. Too many Catholics today do not know their Faith.
