Before I say another word about prayer, it ultimately comes down to one thing.
Just pray. If you haven’t spent at least ten minutes with the Gospel today, take the time you would have spent reading whatever slop I have to offer and spend it with Him. Right now.
Here’s today’s Gospel if you need something upon which to meditate.
Gospel: Jn 15:18–21
Jesus said to his disciples, “If the world hates you, remember that the world hated me before you. This would not be so if you belonged to the world, because the world loves its own. But you are not of the world since I have chosen you from the world; because of this the world hates you.
“Remember what I told you: the servant is not greater than his master; if they persecuted me, they will persecute you, too. Have they kept my teaching? Will they then keep yours? All this they will do to you for the sake of my name because they do not know the One who sent me.”
