What supplies the lack of all other prayers?


Find out at the Sunday Chat Room

The great spiritual writer, St. Francis de Sales, said,

*“…short prayers, Scripture phrases, speaking to Christ throughout the day, lies one of the surest means of your spiritual advancement and the great work of devotion. Without it, the contemplative life cannot properly be followed, nor the active life lived well. It can supply the lack of all other prayers....” *


*...speaking to Christ throughout the day *

Learn more about Salesian spirituality through the ** Living Jesus Chat Room*, where you’ll join a Visitandine sister and others to talk about the Salesian way to *grow in holiness, and in service to others. Whether you are a lay person interested in plunging more fully into a way of daily devotion, or even considering a possible vocation to the monastic Visitandine tradition, we invite you to join us in our chat room.

The chat will be held tomorrow, Sunday from 7:30 – 8:30 pm Eastern Time US, and every Sunday, and will be moderated by a Visitandine sister. Go to the sisters' Living Jesus Chat Room.
