Marianist Monday

We are in Jesus Christ
by our union with him -
his prayer is our prayer;
it is he who offers our prayer,
which is also our prayer.

All of us are called to be conscious of the presence of the God of Love.

This is what Blessed William Joseph Chaminade calls the time of "meditation on the presence of God."

This meditation is "a calm attention to the presence of God."

In order to do this during our time of prayer, Father Chaminade recommends great simplicity. "This simple attention of the mind, accompanied by a gentle ardor of the heart, together with this aspiration or thrust of the heart."

Be conscious of God's love today!
