What will convert America and save the world? My answer is prayer.

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

What will convert America and save the world? My answer is prayer. What we need is for every Parish to come before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament in Holy Hours of prayer.” “Perpetual Adoration with exposition needs a great push.” “Jesus has made Himself the Bread of Life to give us life. Night and day, He is there. If you really want to grow in love, come back to the Eucharist, come back to that Adoration.” “Our lives must be woven around the Eucharist…fix your eyes on Him Who is the light; bring your hearts close to His Divine Heart; ask Him to grant you the grace of knowing Him, the love of loving Him, the courage to serve Him. Seek Him fervently.” “Through Mary the cause of our joy you discover that no where on earth are you more welcomed, no where on earth are you more loved, than by Jesus, living and truly present in the Most Blessed Sacrament...He is really there in Person waitin just for you.” “We cannot separate our lives from the Eucharist; the moment we do, something breaks. People ask, ‘Where do the sisters get the joy and energy to do what they are doing?’ The Eucharist involves more than just receiving: it also involves satisfying the hunger of Christ. He says, ‘Come to Me.’ He is hungry for souls.” “When you look at the crucifix, you understand how much Jesus loved you.When you look at the Sacred Host you understand how much Jesus loves you now.This is why you should ask your parish priest to have Perpetual Adoration in your parish. I beg the Blessed Mother to tough the hearts of all parish priests that they may have Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration in their parishes, and that it may spread throughout the entire world.” “The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you will spend on earth.
Mother Teresa PRAYERS:
“O God, we believe You are here. We adore You and love You with our whole heart and soul because You are most worthy of all our love. We desire to love You as the Blessed do in Heaven…Flood our souls with Your spirit and life. Penetrate and possess our whole being utterly, that our lives may only be a radiance of Yours. Shine through us, and be so in us, that every soul we come in contact with may feel Your presence in our soul. Let them look up and see no longer us, buy only Jesus!”
The fruit of silence is PRAYER
The fruit of prayer is FAITH
The fruit of faith is LOVE
The fruit of love is SERVICE
The fruit of service is PEACE
Roman Catholicism has taught to pray for people who died before us. The Old Testament even has alms and prayers for those who died. A person that dies most likely will spend some time in purgatory. The length of time depends on what God deems fair.
