By Fr. Jacques Philippe
Prayer changes our lives. Through fruitful prayer, God freely graces us with the gifts of joy, peace, courage, and determination.
We can often find, however, that, despite our good intentions, prayer doesn’t come easily. We often have obstacles in our path—distractions from the outside or our own internal weaknesses—that keep us from praying or being faithful to our Christian commitment to Love.
Allow your heart to be guided gently by Fr. Jacques Philippe toward a joyous prayer life that feeds your soul and revitalizes your relationship with the Lord.
