A Year with the Saints – 18 August

Entry

Much more is accomplished by a single word of the Pater Noster said, now and then, from the heart, than by the whole prayer repeated many times in haste and without attention. Saint Teresa of Avila

The Lord one day revealed to Saint Bridget that He was more pleased with one who would recite with perfect faith and earnestness these three words: “Jesus, have mercy on me,” than with another who might recite a thousand verses without attention.
