When we pray, death takes distance from us, anxiety runs from hearts, a sense of peace lights up above the chaos of everyday life.
When we pray, we stay connected with Life and nothing scares us.
When we pray, our relationship with God is renewed, and we find the right relationship with the world and with the things coming from the world.
When we pray, everything seems clearer, brighter; our mind opens to the knowledge of God and so we learn how to use his gifts, without becoming slaves of them.
(Paolo Maino, La potenza della preghiera, Ed. Amen)
