Dear children! With great joy, also today, I desire to call you anew: pray, pray, pray. May this time be a time of personal prayer for you. During the day, find a place where you will pray joyfully in a recollected way. I love you and bless you all. Thank you for having responded to my call. Medjugorje message, August 25, 2010
When you pray, go to your private room and, when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is that secret place, and your Father who sees all that is done in secret will reward you.
Matthew 6 : 6
Recollection, as understood in respect to the spiritual life, means attention to the presence of God in the soul. It includes the withdrawal of the mind from external and earthly affairs in order to attend to God and Divine things. It is the same as interior solitude in which the soul is alone with God.
