…Because it is not about me; it never has been; it never will be. It was never about the priests before me; it will not be about the priests that come after me. It is about Jesus Christ, who is the same yesterday, today and forever. We priests are merely guides, signposts, pointing out Christ to you, and then stepping out of the way. Fr. John Robert Skeldon

Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me

Prayer is the raising of the mind to God. When we pray we go to meet Christ who is coming to us. If our Creator and Savior comes from heaven with such great love, it is only fitting that we should go to meet Him. And this is what we do when we spend some time in prayer. St.Bernardine of Siena

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access, by faith, to this grace in which we stand, and we boast in hope of the glory of God.
