On Prayer

"...Remember, it always pleases God when we come before Him as suppliants. He loves us to ask, pray, beseech, to the point of importunity ... The Heart of God invites us all to put It to the proof. The more he gives, the more He desires to give. He loves to see the trust which makes us persist in knocking unceasingly."

Blessed Placid Riccardi, OSB, (1844-1915), a monk and priest of St. Paul's Outside the Walls Abbey in Rome.
