“The Apostle Paul taught us to pray without ceasing in 1 Thessalonians 5:17. The constant prayer of the Church was behind Peter’s release from prison (Acts 12:5). There are stories of saints who were so focused on their union with God that nothing distracted them. Not only monks and nuns, some deeply religious person in our families may have achieved states of holy ecstasy that seem biblical.”
