Prayer in the Life of the Claretian

Prayer in the Life of the Claretian

Prayer was one of our Fr. Founder’s most beloved topics, something he lived and urged others to do. In the earliest Constitutions he passionately urged the novices:

“What the Missionaries being tested must never forget, what must clamor for their attention before all else, and what must ceaselessly be practiced without slackening or tepidity is the prayer that will be done faithfully and in community...”

From Claret’s perspective, which must be ours since we have been graced with the Claretian charism, prayer is necessary to configure us to Christ, to grow in our missionary life and to be aflame with the love of Christ that must impel us in mission. Only when we are on fire with that love can we spread its flames wherever we go and set all people on fire with God’s love.

In this chapter we will discuss various biblical and theological aspects of prayer that are valid for all Christians and, within them, some more specific elements that our Founder lived and that we should live. Finally, we will offer some pedagogical considerations. We will follow this outline:
