A good way to pray...

This is a quote from Macrina Wiederkehr's A Tree Full of Angels: Seeing the Holy in the Ordinary:
"Today my prayer consisted in simply going to my heart and remembering all the folks I've stored there. It is not cold storage. It is a quite warm and tender place." 

I love Macrina's books and the above quote.

Now, this is from St. Catherine of Siena.
"The sun hears the fields talking about effort
and the sun smiles,
and whispers to me, 'Why don't the fields just rest, for I am willing to do everything to help them to grow?'
Rest, my dears, in prayer."
