In preparation for Rogate

Is it not very interesting that the Sunday when the Church reads St. James' famous words about being doers of the Word and not mere self-deceived hearers, that the command of our Lord in the Gospel reading is: ASK! (And it is, I believe, the only Sunday whose name derives from the Gospel reading). Rogate! ASK! says our Lord. DO IT! St. James chimes in with. Love it! I honestly believe that if we cannot begin with obedience in the matter of prayer, we will not make progress in any other area of our Christian walk - for progress depends on learning to depend on the Blessed Trinity and not on ourselves. In other words, prayer!
