Catholic Spiritual Practices:

 

Ignatian Spirituality: The Spiritual Exercises

Ignatian spirituality is a spirituality for everyday life. It begins by believing that God is present in our world and active in our lives.

 

Monastic Spirituality: Lectio Divina

Lectio Divina is a Latin term which means “divine reading.”  It provides a process for us to reflect on Scripture so to be open to what God might have to say to us.

 

Eucharistic Adoration

Catholics believe that the Eucharist is the real presence of Jesus Christ.  Eucharistic Adoration is the worship, praise, and adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. The Eucharist is displayed in a special holder called a monstrance, and people are invited to come and pray.

 

Praying with Scripture

“In Sacred Scripture, the Church constantly finds her nourishment and her strength, for she welcomes it not as a human word, ‘but as what it really is, the word of God.’ ‘In the sacred books, the Father who is in heaven comes lovingly to meet his children, and talks with them.” Catechism of the Catholic Church, 104

 

Daily Prayer: Pray As You Go

Pray as you go is a daily prayer session, designed for use on portable MP3 players, to help you pray whenever you find time, but particularly while travelling to and from work, study, etc.
