Jesus is telling us disciples that we need not worry that God will not understand our prayers. We do not have to use proper formulas, the right words. God loves us so much that our inadequate prayers suffice.

Mental illness is a widespread and under treated in this Southeast Asian nation that is still recovering from the trauma of the Khmer Rouge government’s reign of terror under leader Pol Pot. "I feel angry about this situation," says Father Kevin Conroy, a Maryknoll priest associate who has been working in Cambodia for 10 years. "The Maryknoll Mental Health Team grew out of my years teaching at Phnom Penh University in the Master's program for clinical psychology," says Father Conroy. "The students got together and we decided to start a project that would help the mentally ill and educate others in the community." Father Conroy involves village leaders and parish workers in basic training to understand and deal with mental illness. (Photo supplied by Father Kevin Conroy/Maryknoll Magazine)
