Vericast is nothing without the grace of God Almighty. And that’s true of all of us in a very personal way. When our souls are weak, or under-developed, we are more vulnerable to the forces of the enemy and are more prone to fall.
Prayer is vital to the spiritual life of every Catholic. Prayer elevates our sensibilities to the God’s Divine Character, leading us to reflect His nature more accurately.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church says this about prayer (Paragraph 2725)
Prayer is both a gift of grace and a determined response on our part. It always presupposes effort. The great figures of prayer of the Old Covenant before Christ, as well as the Mother of God, the saints, and he himself, all teach us this: prayer is a battle. Against whom? Against ourselves and against the wiles of the tempter who does all he can to turn man away from prayer, away from union with God. We pray as we live, because we live as we pray. If we do not want to act habitually according to the Spirit of Christ, neither can we pray habitually in his name. The “spiritual battle” of the Christian’s new life is inseparable from the battle of prayer.
We’ve posted some prayers and some litanies to various saints to help you to build your spiritual arsenal of prayer. The most powerful prayer in a Catholic’s arsenal is the Holy Rosary. Our Lady asks all of us to pray the Rosary daily. We here at Vericast cannot stress enough how vital that is. The Rosary is incredibly powerful. Think of it as your life line.
Prayer must be paired with frequent reception/participation in the sacraments; the most vital of which is Holy Communion. Also the sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession). These 2 sacraments are the most sustaining of a soul that wishes to grow closer to The Truth (God). Achieving holiness is impossible without frequent reception/participation in these two sacraments.
We’ll be including more prayers and some videos in this section to help you further. God bless and be with you.
