Explore the richness and power of prayer, for every occasion, with Fr. William Byron, one of America's leading Catholic educators, as your personal guide.

This unique 12-lecture course presents a series of inspiring and yet practical reflections for Christians or others who wish to enjoy lives more fully enhanced by God's precious blessing of prayer. Sharing insights inspired by Scripture and theology as well as by some of the extraordinary people he has met through his ministry, Father Byron explores the different styles and aims of prayer: Prayer as thanksgiving, prayer as petition, prayer as praise, prayer as a process of learning to cultivate the presence of Divine Love in our lives.

Each has its time and place, and Father Byron explores these too, often through moving anecdotes concerning friends who have taught him lessons along the way about the constant renewal of faith, hope, and love that prayer can bring to the whole array of anyone's life situations.

You as much as anyone else are invited to share in that renewal.

So why not join Father Byron on this journey toward making personal prayer a richer part of your life, in all its seasons and circumstances?
