Prayer of the Church

Edith SteinAll authentic prayer is prayer of the Church. Through every sincere prayer something happens in the Church, and it is the Church itself that is praying therein, for it is the Holy Spirit living in the Church who intercedes for every individual soul “with sighs too deep for words” (Rom 8:26)… What could the prayer of the Church be, if not great lovers giving themselves to God who is love!
Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross
