Prayers of the founders







God is Father, Mother, Spirit, Pastor. (This goes far beyond what the human mind can grasp.) It will give rise to a signal confidence which will impel me to seek him… Because of this I shall be of good cheer, assured, courageous, whether it means undertaking something for the glory of God or whether it means suffering and endurance.

Pierre Fourier

If you really love speaking to God, that is a sign that you love him…

Pierre Fourier

Grant me this O Lord : make your home in me and let me live in you. So that, joined each to each we may live in this close union together now and always. Yes, you are my beloved chosen from among thousands in whom my soul has been pleased to dwell and take her rest my whole life long.

Alix Le Clerc

God..in the presence of whose Majesty I am nothing but a tiny little flea, and less even than that.

Alix Le Clerc

Ask of God only God Himself.

Augustine

Your desire itself is your prayer, and if your desire is constant, so will be your prayer. If you never want to stop praying, never stop desiring. Is your desire constant? Then so must be your voice. You will only fall silent when you have ceased to love.

Augustine
