When you go to your quiet place, make the Sign of the Cross, thank the Lord for calling you into his presence, sit quietly for a moment, and then simply read the lines of a psalm. When you have finished, sit peacefully with the Lord. The conversation should be natural and unforced. The words of the psalm might linger in your thoughts, which is a good thing. The psalms provide us the perfect vocabulary for talking with the Lord and sharing what is in our hearts.
