True or False?: Prayer is a battle against ourselves.Interesting statement here. What do you think? Vote in the poll in the sidebar.
As for last week's poll, here are the results:
- True or False?: The parish is the first place for education in prayer.
- True: 1 (4%)
- False: 22 (96%)
- False. cf. CCC 2685 The Christian family is the first place of education in prayer. Based on the sacrament of marriage, the family is the "domestic church" where God's children learn to pray "as the Church" and to persevere in prayer. For young children in particular, daily family prayer is the first witness of the Church's living memory as awakened patiently by the Holy Spirit.
So, as far as my experience is concerned, the home was the first place I learned how to pray....but it definitely wasn't the only place. Do you remember when and where you learned your Catholic prayers? Leave a comment and let me know.
