The ultimate “prayer book”

“When I was crossing into Gaza, I was asked at the checkpost whether I was carrying any weapons. I replied: Oh yes, my prayer books.” Blessed Mother Teresa

The Bible is the ultimate “prayer book” and a very effective “weapon” to fight against the devil and all of our disordered passions. I encourage all of you to meditate on it daily for 10-15 minutes, focusing particularly on the Gospels. Read it slowly, carefully and allow Christ’s words, actions, and dispositions to become your own. We need to make this our favorite book and our most consulted manual…it truly lays out a road map to holiness and heaven!
