The Best Method of Prayer

“There is no need for many words in order that we may pray properly. By faith we believe that there, in the sacred tabernacle, the good God is present. We open our hearts to Him. We rejoice that He has admitted us into His presence. This is the best method of prayer.”

– The way St. John Vianney used to teach prayer to his parishioners, according to Pope John XXIII.
