Gift of Prayer

Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.
(St. Teresa of Calcutta)

We must speak to God as a friend speaks to his friend, servant to his master; now asking some favor, now acknowledging our faults, and communicating to Him all that concerns us, our thoughts, our fears, our projects, our desires, and in all things seeking His counsel
(St. Ignatius of Loyola).

Prayer is the foundation and essence of our spiritual life. It is an opportunity to come into God’s presence and spend time with Him, to ask Him for whatever we need, and to just be with Him. It is only through prayer and study that we can grow and mature in our faith; it is only through a loving, active relationship with God that we can turn our hearts outward to the whole of humanity.

Gift of Prayer 2020

We are beginning our annual Gift of Prayer campaign this Sunday, May 10! This is a special opportunity to offer God the gift of your prayers, your time, your love and devotion. Each week for five weeks, we will send you (via Flocknote) a link to a new video meditation from Fr. Armando, along with a guide for the coming week with devotions and activities to help you form a meaningful, deliberate prayer life (the first guide is attached below, plus a supplemental document to go with the presentation). 
We hope you will find these weekly devotions meaningful and encouraging. Please feel free to let us know how your Gift of Prayer is going, and how we can better serve you.
