“Man needs a place of holy tranquillity that the breath of God prevades….This place is the inaccessibility of God Himself, which only Christ opens to man.

All prayer begins by man becoming silent – recollecting his scattered thoughts, feeling remorse at his trespasses, and directing his thoughts toward God.  If man does all this, this place is thrown open, not only as a domain of spiritual tranquillity and mental concentration, but as something that comes from God.

We are always in need of this place, especially when the convulsions of the times make clear something that has always existed but which is sometimes hidden…So we require more than ever this place of which we speak, not to creep into as a hiding place, but a s a place to find the core of things, to become calm and confident once more.” (Romano Guardini ROSARY OF OUR LADY.Ignatius Press)
