Prayer, Theological Virtues, Spiritual Aridity – Part 1

Today, in part one of a special two-part interview, Dan speaks with Fr. Jacques Philippe about prayer, the theological virtues and spiritual aridity.

Topics/Questions covered in the show:

  • What is the most powerful prayer?
  • How should the virtues of faith, hope and love be incorporated into my prayer life?
  • How does reading Scripture passages help us grow in faith?
  • How can we build faith, hope and love through the events of daily life?
  • for post on spiritual aridityIf we are dry in prayer and can’t meditate, should we abandon vocal and meditative prayer until the dryness passes, or is it best to maintain our original prayer routine?
  • What are the causes of spiritual aridity or dryness?
