58. A life of praying
St. Jean Marie Vianney, priest of Ars, France, told us a curious case of prayer: There are in the village a peasant who frequently visited the church while going and returning from his job. He left his hoe and his bundle in the frontdoor, entered and stand on his knees long time in front of the Tabernacle. The Saint, who had been watching him and was surprised of his silence- although he didn’t take his eyes off the altar- asked him:
-John, what are you asking to our Lord?
And John answered:
-I say nothing. I see Him and He sees me.
A beautiful anecdote to understand how easy is to deal with the Lord!
