All Things New Prayer Challenge

The Archdiocese of St. Louis is rooted in a strong Catholic legacy . We have much to celebrate from the past and much to look forward to in the future. In this change of an age, we are being challenged to think in new ways about how we share our faith. This requires a discerning heart.

Discernment is one of the most difficult types of prayer that we have. The Holy Spirit makes us discern between trials, which are necessary for our inner growth, and temptation, which leads to sin. Discernment isn’t about what’s good or bad. Discernment is about what is best. It’s looking at all the good things God has given to us and discerning, with His Guidance and with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, what is best for us as a people of faith to draw in deeper relationship with Him, what is best for a people of faith moving forward to evangelize, not only the world of today but the world of tomorrow.

Our primary relationship with Jesus is through the Sacraments, wherever they may be shared. Let us pray for the space to allow the Holy Spirit to guide us to where he wants us to be.

The importance of Unceasing Prayer

Fr. Chris Martin shares about the power of prayer, and why it is a Guiding principle of the All Things New initiative.

Pray With Us.

Jesus, You are the Resurrected One. We, of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, thank You for sharing your resurrected life with us. Help us to move forward in hope as we plan for our future, Lord. May we be emboldened by the power of the resurrection, gracious Father, that we would be anchored in hope. Strengthen us through the Eucharist to be more courageous and encourage us to be more humble. Stir the Spirit that dwells within us, open our hearts to be Your hands and voice in this world so that others will be drawn to You. As we move forward, protect and strengthen our plans and efforts. As we live as a resurrected people, let not failure discourage us nor success blind us.
And at all times, lead us Lord. Amen.
