Praying the Name

"In order to walk, one must take a first step; in order to swim, one must throw oneself into the water. It is the same with the invocation of the Name. Begin to pronounce it (Jesus) with adoration and love. Cling to it. Repeat it. Do not think that you are invoking the Name, think only of Jesus himself. Say his name slowly, softly and quietly.... In time you will find that the name of Jesus will spontaneously come to your lips and almost continuously be present to your mind."
Father Lev Gillet: The Prayer of Jesus
