Overview

A School of Prayer by Pope Benedict XVI

Pope Benedict XVI has declared the year between Oct. 2012 and Oct. 2013 to be a "Year of Faith." Part of the purpose of this year is, in the words of the Pope, "to rediscover the content of the faith that is professed, celebrated, lived and prayed..." (Porta Fidei).

Deepen your prayer life this year with this collection of meditations from the Holy Father's catechesis on prayer, offered since the spring of 2011 through his Wednesday audiences in St. Peter’s Square. These addresses contain profound meditations on prayer as practiced by some of the great figures of history, beginning with Old Testament patriarchs and prophets, leading up to Jesus, our great model in prayer, and continuing on to the prayer of the disciples after the resurrection. The addresses collected in this volume (May 2011 to May 2012) reveal to the Christian in the modern world how he too can live by faith in the God who is always present.

"In the upcoming catechesis [...] let us learn to live our relationship with the Lord even more intensely, as if it were a “school of prayer.” " ~ Pope Benedict XVI
