Busy-ness and Prayer

“Every Christian needs half an hour of prayer every day, except when he is busy; then he needs an hour”
St Francis de Sales

"If you're too busy to pray, you're too busy"
Dom Kenneth Newing

Thanks for giving us a read. I'm only sorry you found THEM before you found US, but Godspeed.

I find prayer to be like the craft of writing. I must do them everyday to stay caught up on the work, but I always can find a thousand other things to do instead. Both writing and prayer require great self discipline, a quality that characterizes the great saints.

Must we educate ukok on the nature of the Extremely True One True Church? He just might change his mind and realize that he must be in communion with me, the Extremely True One True Church. Only then can he experience the fullness of faith.

Firstly, I was an Anglican first. I converted to Catholicism so technically I was with YOU, and then God directed me to the Holy Catholic Church after a 3 year period of prayer and discernment.

Secondly, with regard to Anon's comment, I (ukok) am female.

The St. Frances De Sales quotes is one of my favorites.

By the way, I believe in one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church. The one founded by Jesus and entrusted to St. Peter and passed on down to St. Benedict XVI.
