These recordings of guided prayer are efforts to grow in faith, hope, and love while personally contemplating Jesus in the Gospels. Following the example of St. Josemaría Escrivá, I hope to provide considerations that might help as a person tries to pray on their own.

The beauty of being forgiven
The beauty of being forgiven by Fr. Justin Gillespie
Loving Thomas: An Apostle Who Learns to Trust
Today we try to pray our way into the apostle Thomas' shoes as he experiences the dismay and the pain of coming back to faith after Jesus' death. How he loves deeply and passionately, but needs to reconcile that love with a deeper trust and faith in the person of Jesus.
Opening ourselves to Holy Week
Today we consider in our prayer how we Jesus' life and passion is present to us and how we can better open ourselves to this presence during Holy Week.
"I believe..help my unbelief"
As we approach Holy Week, we turn to Jesus' encounter with a desperate father in order to understand the apparent frustration that Jesus expresses. In prayer we try to discover how, while we might be disappointed and frustrated with ourselves, Jesus only reacts to his desire for union with each one of us being impeded. This is what he wants, and in the depths of our hearts, we do as well.
The Healing Hands of Jesus
Praying on the Solemnity of the Annunciation, we try to allow the Holy Spirit to guide us in a re-discovery of how Jesus' physical presence is God's presence. We want our prayer to become contact with that presence, and following two scenes from the Gospel of Mark, we seek it out.
St. Joseph teaching us to be at home with his son
Joseph had the courage to accept that in spite of his inadequacy, God wanted to live with him, to be that close to him. Under St. Joseph's protection, we too pray for the ability to be that close, that at ease with Jesus and with Mary.
