Pop-Up Catechesis: Praying with Words or in Silence

Pop-Up Catechesis with Joe Paprocki

Isn’t it funny how, when you’ve known someone for a long time, you can tell by the look on his or her face what she or he is trying to say to you? We don’t always need words to communicate with someone. By the same token, it can be difficult to know how someone truly feels unless one puts it into words! When it comes to our prayer lives, at times we can rely on words, while at other times, we can pray in silence. In this episode of Pop-Up Catechesis, we explore the three “venues” of prayer: vocal, meditation, and contemplation.
