How to Pray the Rosary More Deeply

Last edited 1st May 2017

It is interesting that in her appearances at Lourdes, Fatima and other locations, the Mother of God repeatedly recommends praying the Rosary. She does not invite us to pray the Divine Office, or to do spiritual reading, or Eucharistic Adoration, or practice interior prayer or mental prayer. All the mentioned forms of prayer are good, recognized by the Church and practiced by many saints. Why does Mary “only” place the Rosary in our hearts?

7 Prayer Postures For Encountering God

Last edited 19th February 2017

No matter how spiritual we are, we cannot ignore our bodies when we pray. Indeed, we pray with and through them, not only with our voice and thoughts. If we are happy, our face expresses it, and our body does, too; if we’re worried, we put our head in our hands. When we meet someone whom we’ve missed, we embrace them and we get close. We don’t just tell them that we’ve missed them. In our encounter with God, it is the same; our postures express something.

Eat, Pray, Worship: How to Pray as a Family

Last edited 15th March 2017

The family is the place where life is welcomed and the human person first learns to give and to receive love. The family is “a communion of persons” and eating, praying and worshipping together are things that are deeply a part of our humanity and found in family life across all cultures. Sharing a meal with those we love, praying together, and going to Mass together are special times in our lives. Indeed, the Eucharist is the most intimate and beautiful form of communion, where Jesus Christ feeds us with his own body, given up for us.

Vox Pop: What do you eat on Fridays during Lent?

Last edited 9th March 2017

For someone who finds meat to be a staple in their diet, abstaining from meat on Fridays can be tough. And that's the whole idea! We are called to abstain from meat on Friday as a form of penance and a reminder of Christ's love for us on the Cross.
