Finding time to pray?


I’m reminded of the words of a wise Jesuit priest who once told me “Pray first then find time for everything else” I assume that among family activities, etc. I’m not the only one who finds it difficult at times to be still and listen in prayer.

Well, to assist with this challenge, I created and maintain a website of daily Catholic meditations based primarily on the Spiritual Exercises. The meditations are short, concise, and include a simple prayer format. The site does not replace a full silent retreat but rather serves as a supplement for each of our daily lives. You can receive the meditations via email each morning. Here is the link:
