Often prayer can seem overwhelming. Where do I start? What do I say? How often should I pray? St. Therese of Avila put it simply, “For prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God.” And, what constitutes friendship? In friendships, two people share of themselves. Perhaps, you share your innermost feelings..your dreams…your hardships and struggles. Maybe you laugh together or cry together. Our Lord wants to be our best friend. He wants our whole selves — to be in friendship. During his Sunday homily on Nov. 27, Father Bob Weighner spoke of prayer as one of four things we should consider doing more of during this Advent season. Make it a priority — call on your best friend.
