The Best Place to Pray

  When you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will repay you. (Matthew 6:6) The obvious answer to the question is: anywhere and everywhere, “walking in public or strolling alone...seated in your shop...while buying or selling...or even while cooking” (St. John Chrysostom). There are no limits. When I was teaching high school, I used to work out at a local fitness center that many of the students used. They would see me running on the treadmill at night, praying my rosary. Often students asked me, “Does praying on the treadmill count?”
