Your Inner Hermitage

 Try to keep a little hermitage in the center of your being, where you can continue your prayer even during a busy day.

A simple prayer such as “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, have mercy on me a sinner” can give you much consolation and strength when you allow it to remain present in your inner hermitage.

It is the way to let the Spirit of God pray in you.  Henri Nouwen
