SP#8 The School of Prayer: Foundations for the New Evangelization


Fr. Scott Traynor talks about the relationship between our personal prayer and the sacramental life of prayer of the Church.  There is so much to encounter when we open up our hearts and minds to the experience of prayer found in the public worship of the Church.  Using the “ARRRR” method (Acknowledge, Relate, Recieve, and Respond) to enhance our prayer during the liturgy.




In Father Scott Traynor’s book, Blessed John Paul II’s memorable call to make of the parish a school of prayer takes on flesh and becomes concretely attainable. Those you read these faith-filled pages will find renewed desire to create such parishes and a clear road-map toward this goal.
