Brother Marie-Nizier recounts how, the day before they settled in Futuna, they returned to their boat late, after midnight. Peter Chanel started immediately to pray his breviary. His Bishop, Mgr Pompallier, told him firmly to get some rest.
Paul wrote to the Thessalonians: “Pray without ceasing, give thanks in every circumstance: it’s God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1Th 5, 17-18). Lord grant us to be faithful to our daily prayer. Teach us gratitude.
