Quote About Prayer | By Saint Therese

Prayer is, for me, an outburst from the heart; 
it is a simple glance darted upwards to Heaven; 
it is a cry of gratitude and of love 
in the midst of trial as in the midst of joy! 
In a word, it is something exalted, supernatural, 
which dilates the soul and unites it to God. 
Sometimes when I find myself, 
spiritually, in dryness so great 
that I cannot produce a single good thought, 
I recite very slowly a Pater or an Ave Maria; 
these prayers alone console me, 
they suffice, they nourish my soul.

~ Saint Therese
