St. Therese the Anti-Blogger

"I love to say the Divine Office every day, but apart from that I cannot bring myself to hunt through books for beautiful prayers. There are so many of them that I get a headache. Besides, each prayer seems lovelier than the next. I cannot possibly say them all and do not know which to choose, so I behave like children who cannot read: I tell God very simply what I want and He always understands. For me, prayer is an upward leap of the heart, an untroubled glance towards heaven, a cry of gratitude and love which I utter from the depths of sorrow as well as from the heights of joy."--Saint Therese of Lisieux, Story of a Soul.

Her feast day was October 1. With the above duly considered, the Executive Council has nonetheless decided to continue to "hunt through books." There are, we trust, many ways to pray.
