Prayer nourishes the soul

Pleasant surprise to begin year 2022.
Father Parent was a man of great projects, a soul of prayer, adoration and of listening to the Spirit. Through his prayers, we will discover more about this spiritual man who left us as a legacy of inspiring writings.

The Lord establishes a dialogue with the attentive soul. He speaks through the soul, He makes his presence felt. In this dialogue, is it really Him speaking, or is it just imagination? It is possible to discern. If the prayer is positive, if it is in the spirit of the commandments, we can conclude that it comes from God, that it is a form of inspiration, since the Holy Spirit dwells in the heart of the baptized. If the prayer is based on Holy Scriptures, why would we dare to doubt its authenticity?
(page 161). Father Louis-Marie Parent, O.M.I.


Let's collect our thoughts...
Let us place ourselves in the presence of God.
Let’s keep silent.
Let us call on the Holy Spirit.
Let’s call on Mary.
Let us let the voice of the Lord rise within us. (pages 162-163)

I call to you with all my heart.
Be attentive to my voice.
I call out to you to assure you
that I always remain faithful to my covenant. (page 178)

Before dawn breaks, I am present.
When you prolong your prayer into the night,
when you think of me
I become the richness of your desires.
I am the artisan who creates your prayers,
I am the meaning of your meditations,
I am the Love you are looking for.
I am the one who listens to you tirelessly.
I am very close to you. (pages 178-179)
