Oakland – Praying with the Fathers of the Church: St. Gregory of Nyssa and the Lord’s Prayer @ St. Albert’s Priory
Jan 11 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

In his reflection on the Lord’s Prayer, St. Gregory of Nyssa’s approach to prayer remains particularly attractive for us because it reflects the concerns of Christians today, in particular the need to participate actively in the life of the world. Focused upon both the divine and the human, the spiritual and the worldly, the sacred and the secular, Gregory’s understanding of prayer is profoundly incarnational and speaks to the felt needs of men and women in every time and place.
