Catholic Prayer Traditions for the Catechist

Catholic Prayer Traditions for the Catechist is a PDF document available on the Web site of the diocese of Joliet. The Introduction to the document reads as follows:

"In a culture where New Age spirituality can be attractive to many people, including youth and young adults, it is important for Catholic students to receive the information that we have our own beautiful treasury of prayer – ways to draw closer to God that are perhaps less familiar, but not difficult. To make this happen, catechists should be aware of at least the following prayer traditions: Benedictine, Carmelite, Dominican, Franciscan and Ignatian.Each prayer tradition is then described succinctly and published and online resources on each tradition is provided.There are also suggestions of general resources on Catholic Spirituality and prayer."
