Speaker: Fr. Foeckler Topic: St. Teresa of Avila and Prayer
Foeckler started out explaining the Feast of St. Teresa of Avila which is October
named her “Doctor / Teacher of the church”
became a Carmelite Nun at age 18 in Avila, Spain. She was born in 1495 and died
originally stayed at the Incarnation Monestary but left to build San Jose Monastery
the Order. San Jose Monastery has member of only 13 nuns. It was told
to have only 13 nuns
allowed at each monestary. She eventually founded 17 monestaries
wore shoes that were made with ropes with no socks.
Carmelites were also called “Discalced- No shoes” Carmelites.
later went back to Incarnation Monestary and became Mother Superior.
Foeckler then asked the kids what prayer means to them.
– Talking to God/Jesus
– Asking for help
– Thanking God
– Asking for mercy
– Spending time with God
– Asking for forgiveness
– Seeking guidance
is not a monologue! Prayer contains talking and listening.
are 2 types of Prayers :
Spoken Prayer such as Our Father,
Hail Mary, Glory Be, Creed, etc.
involves asking prayer as in petition, thanking, mercy for forgiveness, and praising.
Mental Prayer as when thinking in silence of the heart.
This involves the announcing the mysteries
at the beginning of the rosary and
God’s word and contemplating and time of
silence focused on God.
praying the Rosary, announcing the Mysteries at the beginning represents the
Soul of the
Prayer. 1 Our Father, 10
Hail Mary and 1 Glory Be represents the Skeleton of the Prayer.
we pray we need to remember WHO we are talking with. Then WHAT we are saying.
Prayer is heart to heart conversation with The One by whom we know we are
loved” – St. Teresa of Avila
