The Little Oratory

by David Clayton, The Little Oratory Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Little Oratory books, Keeping a faithful prayer life with your family isn't easy. From herding distracted children to managing the seemingly endless litany of prayers and devotions, our spiritual life all too often feels frantic and burdensome. This isn't the way it should be. Our prayer life, our family life, and our work life should — and can! — be in harmony. When they are, our family is a powerhouse of grace, and Our Lord transforms our home into a little Eden — a little bit of heaven on earth. With simplicity and holy wisdom, authors David Clayton and Leila Marie Lawler show you how to bring peace to your home by integrating your family into the calm, truly joyful way of Mother Church. Her feasts and seasons, prayers and devotions are gifts that draw us closer to God and unfold before us His marvelous plan of salvation. To help you live the liturgical life of the Church more fully, David and Leila reclaim here an almost lost tradition that families used for centuries to build a beautiful bridge between home and church: the little oratory. Consisting of a modest table and icons, the little oratory is a visible sign of spiritual awareness and devotion. It extends the Eucharistic worship of the Mass into the heart of your home, spiritually nourishing your family and preparing them to transform the world through prayer and charity. Building your own little oratory is simple, and in these pages you'll discover just how easy it is. In fact, you likely have most of the pieces in your home already except, perhaps, the sacred art. That's why we've included here seven full-colored icons that are ready for framing, enabling you to get started right away! By following the wise advice in this book, you'll discover the peace and love that flows from a home that is focused on Christ. You'll also learn . . . How to use sacred art to strengthen your prayer life. How to extend Catholic beliefs and devotions into every room of the house. Why the Liturgy of the Hours is important and how it can make your family holy. How to pray the Rosary with children and keep the rowdiest of them calm and reverent. The active role children can and should play in the prayer life of the family. What to do when only one parent takes the spiritual life seriously. How to overcome the feeling that you're too busy to pray. Practical ways to extend the liturgical life into your workplace. And countless other tips to help you practice your faith in the heart of your home. Scott Hahn “This is one of the most beautiful books I've ever seen. How I wish I'd had it when I first became a Catholic, not just for myself, as a husband and father, but for my family, too. If one book has the potential to transform the Catholic family (and society), this is it.” Thomas Howard “This book is a rare treasure.” Christopher West “A superb guide to making that encounter of thirsts a lived experience in the home.” Daria Sockey, author of The Everyday Catholic’s Guide to the Liturgy of the Hours “The Little Oratory will help you discover a pattern of daily prayer that truly fits your family life while creating a place of beauty in the heart of your home." Andreas Widmer, author of The Pope and the CEO “An indispensable resource for anyone seeking to make their home a breeding ground for holiness.” Elizabeth Foss, Founder, In the Heart of My Home “Leila Lawler and David Clayton offer wisdom and grace to Catholics seeking to make their homes a holy shelter.” Joseph Pearce, Editor of The St. Austin Review “Wonderful, inspiring, and deeply practical.” Stratford Caldecott, an Editor of Magnificat UK “A great blessing to Catholic families.” Father Robert Reed, President, CatholicTV Network “A perfect guide for any family who strives to make their home a place to experience the majesty and beauty of the Divine.”

The Contemplative Rosary

by Dan Burke, The Contemplative Rosary Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Contemplative Rosary books, You know that in an Apostolic Letter in 2002, Pope John Paul II added five Luminous Mysteries. Did you know that in that same Letter he also called for a new way of praying the Rosary? St. John Paul II’s new way of praying the Rosary was based on the teachings of St. Theresa of Avila and has become known as the Contemplative Rosary because it more perfectly unites vocal prayer and meditation, transforming the prayers of the Rosary into a contemplative meeting with God. Did you know about these changes? Have you tried them? In our new book, The Contemplative Rosary, we have not only incorporated the five new Luminous Mysteries, we have included as well the many other changes Pope John Paul made to the Rosary. Here are his additions to the texts and prayers — additions small and large — that, as John Paul intended, unite the Rosary more closely to the official liturgical prayers of the Church as well as to Scripture. Here are also scores of full-color images for your contemplation that anchor your attention in each Mystery and transform your Rosary from a hasty, habitual recitation into a profound speaking to God and a keen listening to Him. Following the wise advice of St. Theresa of Avila and the new method proposed by St. John Paul, you’ll find here for each mystery: -A lovely, full-color classical painting depicting the events in the Mystery, for help in your contemplation. -A unique announcement of the Mystery. -A statement of the expected fruits of the Mystery. -The Scriptural passage you should consider before embarking on your prayers of the Mystery. -A call for a moment of silence in order to recollect yourself before entering the presence of God. -Each Mystery’s own unique Hail Mary, including within each a John Paul II recommended statement of faith “to pull wandering minds back to Christ and center them in the mystery.” -Seven meditations tailored to each Mystery, to accompany your recitation of the Hail Marys (but only employ one at a time). -A concluding short prayer asking God for the fruits specific to that Mystery. -Plus much more, so that finally you can begin to pray the Rosary as Saint John Paul wants you to pray it!
