"Anima una et cor unum in Deum!" (Regula)

Thought of Saint Augustine
Your prayer is a conversation with God. When you read, it is God who is speaking, when you pray, it is with God that you are speaking.
If you are the Body of Christ and its members, it is your mystery that is placed on the Lord's table. It is your mystery that you receive. To what you are, you respond «Amen», and by responding, you become part of it.
It is night while this life is lived. And when is this night illuminated? It is lighted when Christ descends to the night. He took the flesh of this generation and our night received the light.
(En. in ps. 138,14)
