How Do I Pray: A 10-Part Series on CatholicTV

"Blink," a fun series of short videos on CatholicTV in Boston, asked me to film a ten-part series called "Ways of Prayer."  We move through: An Overview of Prayer, the Rosary, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, the Mass as Prayer, Nature Prayer, Centering Prayer, Lectio Divina, Ignatian Prayer, and the Examination of Conscience.  Here's the link to the full series.  And here's the clip on Lectio Divina.

Bravo Fr Martin.

Prayer or the prayer lives of others reminds me of the great line from Woody Allen
"I got kicked out of college for cheating on my metaphysics exam, I was looking into a classmates soul".
Fascinating stuff. For those interested in a great book about Ignation prayer I would reccommend 
http://www.amazon.com/Examen-Prayer-Ignatian-Wisdom-Lives/dp/0824523679
http://www.amazon.com/Discernment-Spirits-Ignatian-Everyday-Living/dp/0824522915/ref=pd_sim_b_1

The latter is particularly good.If you want that spiritual shine that comes off of me and that is so noticeable from my comments buy these books.
Seriously ,they are very good .
It might also be helpful Fr Martin to point out the difference between the "Examen of Conscience" and the "Examen of consciousness". This can be studied by reading the excellent Fr Aschenbrenner.
