Is your prayer less than inspiring, and your prayer life in a rut? Do you find yourself longing for a deeper connection with God? Maybe it’s time to turn to a doctor for help.
A doctor of the church, the great Spanish mystic St. Teresa of Avila, is the focus of a five-week course on the four stages of prayer based on the saint’s teaching.
The program will be held Wednesdays, Feb. 17 through March 16 from 7-8:30 each night, at Corpus Parish Center (Conference Rooms B and C) at 900 Sumneytown Pike in Lansdale.
Courses include instruction and practice in mental prayer, meditation and contemplation. Tips on how to discern the voice of God, how to handle distractions and dryness in prayer, and how to recognize signs of advancing prayer are also included.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
