What is School of Prayer?
The term comes from Saint Pope John Paul II's Apostolic Letter, Novo Millennio Ineuente which states, "Yes, dear brothers and sisters, our Christian communities must become genuine "schools" of prayer, where the meeting with Christ is expressed not just in imploring help but also in thanksgiving, praise, adoration, contemplation, listening and ardent devotion, until the heart truly "falls in love". Intense prayer, yes, but it does not distract us from our commitment to history: by opening our heart to the love of God it also opens it to the love of our brothers and sisters, and makes us capable of shaping history according to God's plan." At. St. B's School of Prayer, we want to help you:
- Truly fall in love with Jesus
- Open your heart to God's beloved (everyone)
- Be empowered and emboldened to shape history with us, according to God's plan
Together we can set the world on fire!
Summer Topic and Resources
This summer's topic focused on the question Jesus posed to his disciples - "Who Do You Say That I Am (Mk 8:29)?" Peter's answer to Jesus' question changed him and called him to a whole new way of life. It was his defining moment. Because who Jesus is makes all the difference! Who is Jesus to you? Have you had that defining moment? If not, are you ready?
