How often have you made a promise to yourself to pray and meditate regularly on the teaching of the Catholic Church and the Scriptures? Our good intentions sometimes get sidetracked. Best-selling author Fr. Benedict Groeschel, has written the first in a series of four books, Praying with the Creed, to help us out. By weaving prayer, Scripture, and meditation, he has created a model based on The Oratory of Divine Love. The Italian word for prayer group is oratorio, which in turn is derived from the Latin word for prayer, oratio. The Oratory of Divine Love was revived in America at the beginning of the new millennium as part of an effort by the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal to encourage Church reform. Catholics can grow and learn using these meditations, whether at weekly meetings or on their own. Corresponding with the four pillars of the Catechism, this book of Oratory meditations will enhance your prayer life, helping to make you a deeper witness to the saving grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
These prayerful meditations offer individuals or small groups an opportunity to grow in their faith in God and His Church. The creed that Catholics recite every Sunday provides the backdrop for this book, which is the first of four volumes based on the teachings of the "Catechism of the Catholic Church,"
For members of the Oratory of Divine Love, a lay movement founded by Fr. Benedict Groeschel, this volume offers a guide for weekly prayer. For others it can serve as an instructive spiritual framework for meditative prayer throughout the year.
"People are longing for genuine spiritual nourishment and solid direction. The Oratory of Divine Love promises to be a wonderful way to encourage prayer and deeper spirituality."
--Praise for the Oratory from Archbishop John J. Meyers of Newark
