Thought of the Day

Jesus teaches us expressly that we get what we ask for. He teaches us in realistic images that we must not be faint-hearted but must rather persevere and pester, must give God no peace, must hammer on His door until deep into the night and importune Him to such an extent that He – simply in order to be rid of us – can think of no other solution than to give us what we want.

– Father Werenfried van Straaten, (1913-2003), Founder of ACN
