Pope's quotes: ‘Tell me how you pray’

A quote from Pope Francis:

"There is a saying among us which goes 'tell me how you pray, and I will tell you how you live; tell me how you live and I will tell you how you pray. Because showing me how you pray, I will learn to find the God for Whom you live, and showing me how you live, I will learn to believe in the God to Whom you pray.' For our life speaks of prayer and prayer speaks of our life; praying is something learned, just as we learn to walk, to speak, to listen. The school of prayer is the school of life and in the school of life we progress in the school of prayer."

-- Homily at Venustiano Carranza stadium, Morelia, Mexico, Feb. 16. 2016
