Quote of the Day - God calls man first

POPE CELEBRATES CLOSING MASS OF SYNOD OF BISHOPS ON THE NEW EVANGELIZATION
2567 God calls man first. Man may forget his Creator or hide far from his face; he may run after idols or accuse the deity of having abandoned him; yet the living and true God tirelessly calls each person to that mysterious encounter known as prayer. In prayer, the faithful God's initiative of love always comes first; our own first step is always a response. As God gradually reveals himself and reveals man to himself, prayer appears as a reciprocal call, a covenant drama.
