A message from Fr. Godfrey
An excerpt from
CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
There is no other way of Christian prayer than Christ. Whether our prayer is communal or personal, vocal or interior, it has access to the Father only if we pray "in the name" of Jesus, the sacred humanity of Jesus is therefore the way by which the Holy Spirit teaches us to pray to God our Father.

To Evangelize in Love and Truth
Every Christian is challenged, here and now, to be actively engaged in evangelization ; indeed, anyone who has truly experienced God's saving love does not need much time or lengthy training to go out and proclaim that love.
Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium
Prayer is the place of refuge for every worry, a foundation of cheerfulness, a source of constant happiness, a protection against sadness.
