Vocal Prayer (Catechism paragraph 2703)

Duerer-Prayer…God seeks worshippers in Spirit and in Truth, and consequently living prayer that rises from the depths of the soul. He also wants the external expression that associates the body with interior prayer, for it renders him that perfect homage which is his due.

    we pray with all our mind body and soul.. when one is neglected the others suffer, balance… when we are sick ,we tend to be crabby , so too if we are sinful we feel down ,crabby or cant think clearly..  reading a book “mysteries marvels miracales-lives of the saints”this book talks about the love of God scripture and how our soul effects our body mind and life… if you are deeply united to God it will affect everything you do and say- you wonder -wow i did not know that -as you say something.. God takes over.. His wisdom abounds

    Oh dearest Jesus, my beloved.  Call me to dance with you, to move with and in you.  Generate within me that explosive freedom that compels me to lift my voice, my heart, my soul, in adoration of your adorable face.  Help me to love you in spirit and in truth  AMEN

    So much have I learned from reading the life of Saint Faustina Kowalska…she had taught me how Jesus loves all sinners and calls them unceasingly to run back to Him and into His  open arms with repentant hearts and contrite souls….place our our wretchedness, our brokennes, our miserable selfish hearts and deformed souls at His Feet and allow Him to wash away all our sins, heal our hearts and souls and strengthen us…..the only condition is that we trust Him completely…..with that, the Holy Spirit will do the rest.  Jesus I Trust in  You
