Living on a Prayer
How’s your prayer life going? Need an infusion of new energy… or introspection? “For me, prayer is a surge of the heart … a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy,” Therese of Lisieux wrote. Teresa of Avila wrote: “Prayer is an act of love… Even if sickness distracts from thoughts, all that is needed is the will to love.” “Perfect prayer is achieved not with many words but with loving desire… everything you do can be a prayer,” Catherine of Siena counseled. “Prayer is nothing but the inhaling and exhaling of the one breath of the universe,” Hildegard of Bingen advised. Learn about the lives and prayer philosophies of our four female Doctors of the Church and how their practices and examples can enrich your prayer life today. Melanie Rigney is the author of Sisterhood of Saints: Daily Guidance and Inspiration (Franciscan, 2013), and of the forthcoming Rejoice and Be Glad: Living the Beatitudes with the Female Saints.
