Today we honor Pope (now “Saint”) John XXIII, the humble man whose vision shocked the world of the 20th century with an aggiornamento (updating) that invigorated the Catholic Church in the modern world. His faith and integrity was grounded in his love and holiness. He was known to have lived by simple prayer and love for his Church, the world and people everywhere. Here is one of his simply stated pearls of wisdom.

Prayer is the raising of the mind to God. We must always remember this. The actual words matter less.
