Paus Benediktus XVI Berdoa
"If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?' (Mt. 7:11). He says good things, because God does not give all things to them that ask Him, but only good things." (St. Thomas Aquinas, Doctor of the Church)
"Above all I recommend to you always, recollection, that holy solitude, that inner sacred desert in which your soul ought always to be alone in the bosom of the heavenly Father, in the silence of faith and holy love." (St. Paul of the Cross)

"If He who was without sin prayed, how much more ought sinners to pray?" (St. Cyprian of Carthage)

"Do nothing at all unless you begin with prayer." (St. Ephraem the Syrian, Doctor of the Church)

"May prayer be our refuge in every necessity, and penance our safeguard against sin." (Gueranger)

"Pray, pray, pray; prayer is the key to the treasures of God. It is the weapon of combat and of victory in every battle for good over evil." (Pope Pius XII)

"The more a man is deficient in wisdom, weak in strength, borne down with trouble, prone to sin, so ought he the more to fly to Him who is the never-ceasing fount of light, strength, consolation, and holiness." (Pope Leo XIII, "Divinum Illud Munus", 1897)

"The spiritual life, however, is not limited solely to participation in the liturgy. The Christian is indeed called to pray with others, but he must also enter into his bedroom to pray to his Father in secret; furthermore, according to the teaching of the apostle, he must pray without ceasing." (Second Vatican Council)

"Redouble your prayers so that God might be with you in a greater abundance of grace, fighting and triumphing with you. Accompany your prayers with the practice of the Christian virtues, especially charity toward the needy. Seek God's mercies with humility and perseverance, renewing every day the promises of your baptism." (Pope Leo XIII, "Custodi Di Quella Fede", 1892)

"We beseech all again and again not to yield to the deceits of the old enemy, nor for any cause whatsoever to cease from the duty of prayer. Let their prayers be persevering, let them pray without intermission; let their first care be to supplicate for the sovereign good - the eternal salvation of the whole world, and the safety of the Church. Then they may ask from God other benefits for the use and comfort of life, returning thanks always, whether their desires are granted or refused, as to a most indulgent father. Finally, may they converse with God with the greatest piety and devotion according to the example of the Saints, and that of our Most Holy Master and Redeemer, with great cries and tears." (Pope Leo XIII, "Octobri Mense", 1891)
