"Prayer, in my opinion, is nothing else than an intimate sharing between friends;  it means taking time frequently to be alone with Him who we know loves us"  ('St Teresa of Avila)



There are as many ways of praying as there are people, and, wherever you are on that journey, I hope that these pages can offer suggestions and nourishment for your spiritual life.   These suggestions are by no means exhaustive but are offered as a starting point.  There are many resources and books to provide fuller explanations.



“For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy." (St Therese of Lisieux)
