Our desire to pray comes from the very root of our lives. We do pray and we sometimes talk about prayer, but we rarely explore together the great potential that we have, as baptised people, for intimacy with the Lord. During Lent this year, I would like to place prayer as a particular focus and, in order to nurture this focus, to offer some workshops on prayer.
“Every person needs a ‘centre’ in his life, a source of truth and goodness to draw from in the flux of the different situations of everyday life and its toil. Everyone of us, when he pauses for a moment of silence, needs to feel not only the beating of his own heart, but more deeply, the beating of a trustworthy presence, perceptible to the senses of faith and yet more real: the presence of Christ, heart of the world.” (Pope Benedict XVI, 1.6.08)
I am offering weekly workshops, via Zoom, starting before Lent so we can look to discover a deeper personal contact with the Lord. My hope is that, together, we can nurture our prayer with new vision and rhythm.
The workshops (25 minutes) will take place on Sundays at 5pm, starting this coming Sunday, 24th January. If you would like to take part in these Zoom calls, please send your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org
