Adoration, Understanding Prayer, Success Bias, Like Children 8.13.19

  • Retreat report: recent holy hour inspires Fr. Matthew.
  • Three modes of prayer: spoken; meditation (seeking the Lord); contemplation (like a close sharing between friends).
  • Research proves: we take the credit for success and blame others for failure. God’s providence is in charge.
  • Can treating yourself like a little child, heal childhood wounds? Today’s gospel reminds us of the dignity of children; and to be “like children” i.e., humble, dependent, reliant, obedient.
