[The following is part six of a ten part series of meditations based on insights and excerpts from the book He Leadeth Me by American Jesuit Father Walter Ciszek. The book details his faith journey as spent for 23 years in Soviet prisons and labor camps of Siberia. A truly amazing testament of faith and wisdom!!] Consider the following excerpt:
“We must constantly work to strengthen it (our faith) and make it operative in all we do…The surest way to do this, I think, is by prayer…And this is why, again in my opinion, the Morning Offering is still one of the best practices of prayer – no matter how old-fashioned some may think it. For in it, at the beginning of each day, we accept from God and offer back to him all the prayers, works, and sufferings of the day, and so serve to remind ourselves once again of his providence and his kingdom.”
