The Best Things to Pray for
Prayer is good for us, according to saints and holy ones, philosophers and poets, but I have not found the process easy to do on a daily basis! In looking for ways to better understand what prayer is, as well as how to do it, I found Ruth Moffet's 1933 book, "Do'a, On Wings of Prayer."

Jesus of Nazareth
Award winning film produced by Franco Zeffirelli, depicts the life of Jesus Christ from birth to resurrection. Originally made for television in 1977, this set is available on DVD or VHS. It´s been a few years since I last watched this awesome depiction of Christ´s life, but it still remains one of my favorite.
Spiritual Memoirs of a Catholic Priest, By Edward L. Beck. Each chapter contains a scripture passage and personal tales revealing God’s presence in everyday life. Fr. Beck is a member of the Passionist community and travels throughout the country preaching and organizing retreats. I highly recommend this wonderful book and have personally attended several of Fr. Beck’s inspiring parish missions.
