Enter into your secret room and shut the door

February 7th 2023

Jesus said, ‘When you pray, go into your room, shut the door, and pray to your Father who is in the secret place.’ This secret room that Jesus speaks of is a symbol with great depth. Suppose that you are on the street and you would like to talk to a friend who is in another city – you cannot. In order to talk to them, you must go into a phone booth; there, you will find a device, dial a number and your call will go through. If you do not go in, you can talk and you can shout, but your friend will not hear you. Like phone booths, this secret room that Jesus speaks of is well equipped with devices that allow you to communicate with heaven. Once you have entered the phone booth, you close the door so that you can listen and speak in silence. In the same way, there is also a very silent place within you, and you must shut the door after entering. Shutting the door means not letting thoughts and desires unrelated to the prayer enter into you. At that point, you can address your request to heaven and you will receive an answer.*
