PRAYER LIFE

Prayer is turning the heart towards God.

When a person prays they enter into a living relationship with God. Prayer is the great gate leading into faith. People who pray no longer live on their own, for themselves, and by their own strength. They know there is a God to whom they can talk. People who pray entrust themselves more and more to God.  The effort to pray daily is part of life as a Christian.

ROSARY

The simple prayer of the Rosary - with its Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful and Glorious mysteries - marks the rhythm of human life

“We cannot forget that evangelisation is first and foremost about preaching the Gospel to those who do not know Jesus Christ... Many of them are quietly seeking God, led by a yearning to see his face, even in countries of ancient Christian tradition. All of them have a right to receive the Gospel. Christians have the duty to proclaim the Gospel without excluding anyone.”

Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium, 15

"PRAYERS ARE NOT MAGIC WORDS..."

Pope Francis said that prayers are not magic words for Christians and when we pray the ‘Our Father’ we can feel God looking at us and this prayer should be the cornerstone of our prayer life. His words came during his Mass celebrated in the chapel of the Santa Marta residence.
