"We do not produce prayer. During prayer time we do not attempt to initiate a relationship with God; that relationship already exists. Prayer is an attempt to realize the love that unites us with God, allow it to become more present to us, and give it greater scope to act upon us and to change us. We do not produce prayer. We allow prayer to act. All we can do, if we must do something active, is invest our energies to reduce alternative activities so that prayer may emerge more freely." ~Fr. Michael Casey
