The Busy Catholic’s Guide to Finding Time to Pray

St. Paul’s call in Thessalonians 5:17 is to “pray without ceasing”, but how do we do that in our busy lives today?

In this video, Fr. Mark-Mary offers us practical ways to build little moments of prayer into our daily routine. The important thing to remember is that simply inviting God into these holy pauses will help sanctify your day and strengthen your relationship with him.
