An old, yet new, approach to learning how to pray . . .
How many times do we let the pressures of life and work take over our days at the expense of prayer? How many times do we feel alone and frightened? How many times do we think our problems are unique?
Follow in the footsteps of the Apostles when they asked Jesus to teach them to pray as he did. Learn from St. Augustine, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Ignatius, St. Teresa of Avila, St. Francis de Sales, and St. Therese of Lisieux as they exemplify incredible devotions to prayer each in their own way.
