57. Learning how to pray
"Lord, teach us to pray!" (Luke 11,1), said the Apostles to Jesus one day. And He taught them the Lord’s prayer. The same thing happens to us, and many times we want to say Him: Jesus, teach me how to pray! Here, as with other skills, we need to learn. Usually, the Christian learn to pray in family, what is called the “household church”. Since a very early age, children are taught in the first prayers, dedicated to Go, Jesus, the Virgin, the angels or the saints. They are simple and touching prayers, transmited and maintained from fathers to sons. We could live that in our family like in the Church, which is a “prayer community”; if we live as good sons, our good mother the Church will teach how to pray and help us to be “souls of prayer”.
