Our Lady of Lourdes –
Have you ever wondered if you have the right ingredients for your prayer? The woman in today’s Gospel had them all and her prayer was answered. First and foremost, she had LOVE. She made the misery of her child her own. This woman had FAITH. It was a faith which grew. This woman had unbeatable PERSISTENCE. This woman had the one supremely effective quality in prayer, she was sincere. This woman had the gift of CHEERFULNESS. This “prayer recipe” always works.
