Prayer and Spirituality

Prayer and Spirituality: Free Online Resources

 

Prayer and SpiritualityPrayer is simply dialogue with God, and Christian spirituality is growing spiritually through an ever-deepening dialogue with God through Jesus Christ, the one mediator between God and Man.

 

The Prayer and Spirituality section of the Crossroads Library is a collection of resources that include prayers and readings from Saints, Mystics, Fathers of the Church, Doctors of the Church, and contemporary authors who are not quite saints or mystics yet, but offer ideas on how to navigate through the everyday distractions and hazards that we all deal with to a deeper relationship with God.   Such resources include, for example, the prayers of Abandonment of Thomas Merton and Charles de Foucauld, For related resources, visit the Virtues and Christian Character section of the Crossroads Initiative Library.

Personal Prayer: Pathway to Joy CD

Marcellino D'Ambrosio, Ph.D.

 

Personal Prayer Pathway to Joy, Marcellino D'Ambrosio, Catholic FaithEveryone knows that personal prayer is important.  You can't expect to deepen a relationship with God talking with Him only once a week!  But how, in the midst of the busy, noisy life we all lead, can we develop a pattern of daily prayer that really works?  And if we are successful in carving out some moments for prayer, what do we do?  How should we spend that time in way that would be most fruitful?

 

Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio has taught spiritual theology academically, but, more importantly, he's had plenty of practice applying that tradition to everyday life.  With a family of seven, a business, and a non-profit corporation to run, he knows the challenges that a busy, active life can pose to the Christian who wants to pray.  In this talk, he lays down principles and gives practical suggestions on how busy laypeople can develop a prayer life that leads to joy and personal transformation.
