July 31st guest hosts Spencer Hargadon and Ryan Mahle talk with David Clayton and Leila Lawler, “The Little Oratory: A Beginner’s Guide to Praying in the Home” (Sophia Press). Keeping a faithful prayer life with your family isn’t easy. From herding distracted children to managing the seemingly endless litany of prayers and devotions, our spiritual life all too often feels frantic and burdensome. To help you live the liturgical life of the Church more fully, David and Leila reclaim here an almost lost tradition that families used for centuries to build a beautiful bridge between home and church: the little oratory. The book is available at http://shop.sophiainstitute.com/Little-Oratory-P653.aspx David blogs at: http://thewayofbeauty.org Leila blogs at: www.likemotherlikedaughter.org

Host Kathleen Beckman dialogues with Leila Lawler about her new book by Sophia Press, “The Little Oratory: A Beginner’s Guide to Praying In The Home.” They discuss the primacy of prayer within the context of the domestic church, how to foster family prayer and sharing of the faith, the role of sacred art to strengthen our prayer life and the importance of creating a little oratory in every home where God can honored and the family can gather.
