“Prayer in the Catholic Tradition: Exploring the Other Side of Your Soul”

When Fr. Bede Griffiths went to India to establish a Christian contemplative community he said that he was also going there to “explore the other half of my soul.” Catholic prayer is so much richer than many people realize. In this lively, informative, encouraging, and sometimes challenging presentation, Dr. Wicks will offer practical approaches to learning, practicing and sharing a vital prayer life that can, in Jesus’ words, “make all things new.” Topics will include making friends with a gospel, deepening your own “rule of prayer,” and “simple approaches to contemplation,” and “dealing with resistances to prayer.”
