How You Can Pray More & Grow Closer to Christ this Lent!


Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has said Lent is like a retreat during which we can turn back into ourselves and listen to the voice of God.

He said, “It is a period of spiritual ‘combat’ which we must experience alongside Jesus… using the arms of faith: prayer, listening to the word of God and penance. In this way we will be able to celebrate Easter in truth, ready to renew the promises of our Baptism.”

We’ve been working on a special project to help you journey through Lent with Jesus.

And like Pope Benedict suggested, it’s a retreat :)

It’s called the Pray More Lenten Retreat! 

The Pray More Lenten Retreat will be just like an in-person retreat that you can experience at home — anywhere, anytime. 

It’s an online retreat. If you sign up, you’ll hear from four speakers, each of them giving a few video presentations that will help you be more dedicated to prayer in your everyday life this Lent — and onward. :)

You’ll also receive a transcript of their talks along with reflective study guides for each.

And, you will be able to download the presentations so you can listen to them anywhere.

You can register for the retreat here:

All of the materials will be released on Wednesday, March 1st, the first day of Lent.

We hope they will help you to prepare to commemorate the Lord’s Passion, death, and the celebration of His Resurrection at Easter.

God bless you!

  2. Please prayer for James G. Sweeney, suffering from cancer, for healing and a cure and peace and strength for his family. Thank you

  3. I am looking forward to this Lenten Retreat. I have already registered and donated, but do not see a means of accessing this program which start today (3/1). I was looking for a log on or access but could not find how to join in. Please advise.

  4. URGENT. We need to pray, set up a special novena and pray. I just saw the news there are witches cults casting spells against President Trump to harm him. We need to pray for his safety, and all evil against him. Because of our prayers God has been on his side. But now he is being targeted by satanic people. He needs Gods help now more than ever. Please Please let us pray for him. Through Christ our Lord God. Amen.

    • I don’t think any comment along these lines is insane. There is a bigger spiritual warfare going on and people are influenced believing it is their motives and beliefs and not something much bigger, much darker, and much more sinister controlling them.
      Trump, although not an example of purity and sacredness to say the least lol, is tampering with things that have been in place that are motivated by pure GREED and PURE evil. ESPECIALLY evil.
      So yes, you have my devout prayers. No one but someone like him who may not be the most likeable person, at least to the public eye, and one who has not cared what anyone thinks of him when making decisions and saying things most of us hate, could stand up to such opposition and hatred, with steadfastness and stubborn resolve.
      God has used many sinners to carry out his good works
      Take Samson for instance, he was a womanizer, David was an adulterer and a murderer, I could go on and on….

  5. I never get your notices anymore for the next upcoming novenas…..sorry my name has been taken off your list….especially when I did donate the $84.00 as requested to your site.

    Can you please get me back on?
