Amy's priest last week told us a story about a little girl with leukemia he went to visit in the hospital. "Do you pray?", he asked her. "Sometimes I pray. Sometimes I just say my prayers."

This is a really powerful statement and my biggest pet peeve about the Catholic church. We focus so much on form prayer and it leaves little room for actually praying and thinking about what the gospels and readings are saying.
