Brother Lawrence – Chapel of the Heart

It is not necessary to be always in church to be with God, we can make a private chapel of our heart where we can retire from time to time to commune with Him, peacefully, humbly, lovingly; everyone is capable of these intimate conversations with God, some more, others less; He knows what we can do. Let us begin – perhaps He is only waiting for a single generous resolution from us….

Become accustomed then little by little to adore Him in this way: demand of Him His grace; offer Him your heart from time to time during the day in the midst of your work, at every moment if you can; do not burden yourself with rules or particular devotions but act with faith, with love and humility.

– The Fourth Letter of Brother Lawrence, The Practice of the Presence of God
