This is so necessary that the earth on which you live, the air you breathe, the bread that sustains you, the heart that beats in your breast, none of them are so necessary to man for his bodily life as prayer is to a Christian if he is to live as a Christian. This little volume directs one to contemplate the life of Christ in a developmental manner as the week progresses. In this way, a person can develop a habit of constant prayer. Saint John Eudes reminds us: “Prayer is perfect delight, supreme happiness, a true earthly paradise. It is by this divine exercise of prayer that the Christian soul is united to God, who is the center of its being, its goal and its supreme good. It is in prayer that God belongs to the soul and the soul to God. It is by praying that the soul pays Him rightful service, homage, adoration and love, and receives from Him His lights, His blessings and a thousand tokens of His exceeding great love. It is during your prayers that God takes His delight in you. Let us live in a way that our Lord can take delight in us.
