Pope on Prayer

pope prayingHis Holiness Pope Benedict gave a series of catechesis on prayer during his Wednesday audiences from May 4, 2011. The reflections of the Pope is based on Scripture and the tradition of the Church. The pope introduces the topic thus,   “I would now like to choose a topic that is dear to all our hearts: it is the theme of prayer, and especially Christian prayer, the prayer, that is, which Jesus taught and which the Church continues to teach us. It is in fact in Jesus that man becomes able to approach God in the depth and intimacy of the relationship of fatherhood and sonship. Together with the first disciples, let us now turn with humble trust to the Teacher and ask him: “Lord, teach us to pray” (Lk 11:1)”.
