The image showing the fish in a bowl of water is inspired from an idea that St George Preca often referred to when speaking about our relationship with God. According to him we live in God like a fish in water. As the fish lives in water and cannot survive without it we are constantly surrounded with the presence and the love of God and we should be convinced that we cannot live without him.

Prayers by St George Preca

Quotidie

Quotidie means "everyday". This is meant to be the everyday prayer of the Christian.

Lord God, you are here and I am in you: I speak to you and you listen to me: I ask of you and you grant to me because you have shown us in Holy Scripture that it is your delight to be with us your children, and also that it is your wish that we should have recourse to you in all our needs. It is with total confidence, therefore, that we ask of you as children ask of their parents.
