“The inner voice is something which cannot be described in words. But sometimes we have a positive feeling that something in us prompts us to do a certain thing. The time when I learnt to recognize this voice was, I may say, the time when I started praying regularly.”

Question for Meditation: What is your inner voice saying?

“This present day [Christmas] cast open the heavenly door to our prayers: let us open our doors to those who ask our forgiveness. Now the Divine Being took upon Himself the seal of humanity, in order for humanity to be decorated by the seal of Divinity.”

Question for Meditation: If God hears and answers our prayers, how are we then called to act toward others?
