Prayer during Lent – Podcast

Listen in, to our latest podcast where Fr David Hore CSsR reflects
on the profound significance of prayer during the Lenten season. Fr David unpacks Lent as a spiritual retreat, a time for self-examination and growth, mirroring the yearly spring cleaning of our homes but with a focus on our inner selves.
Fr David sheds light on the importance of not necessarily increasing the quantity of prayer, but enriching its quality, ensuring our hearts and actions align with Christ’s teachings. He emphasises the power of prayer to guide us through this season of transformation.
Engaging in this conversation, we uncover how these practices can lead to a deeper appreciation of Good Friday

Join us as we explore the indispensable role of prayer in
life’s tapestry.
