In The Prayer We Offer, the final book in the four-volume Pillars of Faith series, renowned Washington, DC, pastor and teacher Msgr. Peter J. Vaghi illuminates scripture, the Catechism, and the writings of Pope Benedict XVI to help readers begin or deepen their life of prayer.
Vaghi guides readers in an exploration of the practice of Christian prayer, starting from the perspective that prayer is God’s gift to his people. Following the outline of the fourth section of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, he explores the Old Testament roots of prayer, Jesus as the Master Teacher of prayer, and Jesus’ own prayer life—especially during Holy Thursday and Good Friday. Vaghi guides readers into the riches of prayer and offers practical guidance for overcoming common obstacles to conversation with God. Chapters are also devoted to the Rosary and the Our Father.
The Prayer We Offer is an ideal resource for:
- RCIA candidates
- Adult faith formation directors and teachers
- Directors of Religious Education
