When? Where? How? Common-sense advice on the ins and outs of prayer with Fr. Bryan Norton, S.J.
All is vanity unless it is related to deepening our relationship with Jesus and loving others for His sake. Christ can give meaning to our activities so do not despair.

Why should I bother being religious if unbelievers can be decent, honest people too?
