When I want to rest, I pray. I realized that only prayer relieves a person properly of fatigue. So pray and learn … Prayer is rest. The soul is not tired of praying because, while speaking with God, it rests.

How many times I have said “I am so tired! I just want to sleep!” and then I wake up and feel tired once again. Perhaps our fatigue is different than we think. We are worn out, not by the body’s work, but by the noise and commotion of our lives.

Let us pray in silence. Let us hide in the embrace of our Lord. In our Home, we always find true rest.
