What is Prayer?

The person who prays strives to be in communication with God, principally to adore him, to praise him, to thank him for his gifts, to make reparation for our offences, and to ask for our various needs, both spiritual and temporal. So the Catechism of the Catholic Church sees prayer as "a vital and personal relationship with the living and true God" (CCC, n. 2558).

Importance of Personal Prayer

Personal prayer is the prayer of an individual. It wells up from the depths of the heart of the person. It can indeed be inspired by liturgical or community prayer. But it is personal and peculiar to that person. Personal prayer can be in words. But it can also take the form of "inexpressible groanings" (cf. Rom 8:26), as the Holy Spirit may guide each soul.

Importance of Going to Mass

As Pope Francis explained, it’s so important to go to Mass every Sunday because that’s where people receive Christ who saves, forgives and unites everyone to his father, church and each other. In fact, every authentic journey of faith, communion and witness springs from this sacrament of love

Importance of Confession

In His divine mercy, Jesus called the sinner to realize the sin, to repent of it, and to be reconciled with God and neighbor. Jesus wanted this ministry of reconciliation to continue. On the first Easter Sunday evening, Jesus appeared to His Apostles, "breathed on them," and said, "Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive men's sins, they are forgiven them; if you hold them bound, they are held bound." (Jn 20:21-23)

Importance of Baptism

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states: "The Lord himself affirms that baptism is necessary for salvation [John 3:5]. Baptism is necessary for salvation for those to whom the Gospel has been proclaimed and who have had the possibility of asking for this sacrament [Mark 16:16]" (CCC 1257).

Importance of Confirmation

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that Confirmation is the special outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Its effects are to root us more deeply in divine filiation, unites us more firmly to Christ, increases the gifts of the Holy Spirit in us, strengthens our bond with the Church, and associates us more closely to her mission of bearing witness to Christ.
