“For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.” –St. Therese of Lisieux, Manuscrits autobiograohiques, C 25r.

Our Catholic tradition includes many ways to pray, to raise our minds and hearts to God. Lent is a wonderful season to take up a new discipline or practice of prayer. The Church encourages a number of popular prayers to help us walk with Jesus during Lent, these 40 days of fasting and prayer, to prepare ourselves for Holy Week and Easter (e.g. the Examen, prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, Stations of the Cross, the Rosary, Chaplet of Divine Mercy, etc.). We invite you to spend some time with one or all of these practices during this season of Lent .
