“Then all the army officers, including Johanan son of Kareah and Jezaniahv son of Hoshaiah, and all the people from the least to the greatest approached Jeremiah the prophet and said to him, 'Please hear our petition and pray to the Lord your God for this entire remnant. For as you now see, though we were once many, now only a few are left. Pray that the Lord your God will tell us where we should go and what we should do.'"
- Jeremiah 42:1-3
"It is better to say one Our Father fervently and devoutly than a thousand with no devotion and full of distraction." — St. Edmund
