“How to pray?  This is a simple matter.  I would say: Pray any way you like, so long as you do pray.”  -Pope John Paul II

Explore these useful and important prayers and resources identified by Father Rutten to help you form your faith and become closer to God everyday.

The Angelus
Generally prayed at 6am, noon and 6pm daily.

The Examen
Great aid for closing the day and reflecting on God’s work in one’s life. Developed by St. Ignatius and stated as the most important part of spiritual formation for a Jesuit.

Pope Francis’ Prayer to Mary Undoer of Knots
Our Lady, since her providential role in bringing the Savior into the world, is still a means to finding the freedom and peace of the Savior today. Bring your troubles to your mother and let her undo the knots in life.

Prayer of Abandonment
Prayer of Bl. Charles de Foucauld.

Litany of Humility
There are three ways to Heaven according to St. Bernard of Clairvaux: Humility. Humility. Humility.

Do you ever feel like you could use some help approaching God in your prayers? The Memorare is a prayer that reminds us that we have a wonderful advocate and protector in the mother of our Lord, the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The Liturgy of the Hours
Following the Mass, this is the most important prayer of the Church. Prayed by priests, deacons and religious every day. Vatican II, in the universal call to holiness has encouraged every person to begin this way of Jesus and praying of the Psalms. Helpful to begin with one of the “hours” until it is a habit.

The Holy Rosary
The repetition in the Rosary is meant to lead one into restful and contemplative prayer related to each Mystery. The gentle repetition of the words helps us to enter into the silence of our hearts, where Christ’s spirit dwells. The Rosary can be said privately or with a group.
