Hi Phil,

I was wondering how you think my latest blog post meshes with this interview.

I agree ... but, since prayer is essentially the communication part of a relationship, the emphasis should be on listening, sharing, learning- time spent together should not be measured in minutes but in moments. So, you are right. BUt it is also good to spend much time together with the one you love and serve.

Your thoughts?
