Prayer & Resources

Prayer is the lifting of the mind and heart to God and is essential in the life of a Catholic.

As Scripture and Tradition witnesses, the Church encourages not only to directly pray to God but those who have joined Him in his heavenly glory. We pray to the saints because they share a special relation to God and thus are able to intercede and assist us.

Our Lady holds a special place in the heart of our Lord and His Church. How could our Lord deny a request from His mother whose will is so perfectly united with the will of God?

Prayer unites us to God and thus to His Mystical Body. For this reason, the Church encourages us to pray together: “For wherever two or more are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them” (Matt. 18:20).
