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.
No one is able to reach God without flying over oneself.
(In Io. Ev. XX, 8)
