A blog once called "Mostly Prayers," it grew with me. In the process of seeking and being with God in intimate conversations with him, I see that prayer has become an intertwined layer of who I am and who God has shaped me to be. Sheltered and carried under the wings of the Spirit, God is HE who makes it happen -- every single moment, in continuous prayer, with him, in real LIFE.

Quote: Advent 2012
"Advent is concerned with that very connection between memory and hope which is so necessary to man. Advent’s intention is to awaken the most profound and basic emotional memory within us, namely, the memory of the God who became a child. This is a healing memory; it brings hope. The purpose of the Church’s year is continually to rehearse her great history of memories, to awaken the heart’s memory so that it can discern the star of hope.…
It is the beautiful task of Advent to awaken in all of us memories of goodness and thus to open doors of hope." -- Pope Benedict XVI
