Happy Feast of Saint James!

In festo S. Jacobi Apostoli

Prayer is also a work. A work of adoration. A
work of contrition. A work of thanksgiving. A
work of supplication.

Be not weary in this noble work. Rather be
steadfast and trusting in God, the giver of all
consolations.

Pope Benedict XVI: “If the lungs of prayer
and of the Word of God do not nourish the
breath of [our] spiritual life, we risk
suffocating in the midst of a thousand daily
cares. Prayer is the breath of the soul and of
life.”
