Prayer

er Certificate of RE. The Kataphatic Prayer The Kataphatic prayer, honours and reverences images and feelings and goes through them to God. This form of prayer also has an ancient and wellattested history in the world of religions. Any sort of prayer that highlights the mediation of creation can be called kataphatic. So, praying before icons or images of saints; the mediation of sacraments and sacramentals; prayer out in creation - all these are kataphatic forms of prayer. The liturgy with its prayers, ritual gestures, and ritual symbols is a very important prayer of this type. Icons Icons An icon is a religious work of art, most commonly a painting, from

Eastern Christianity and in certain Eastern Catholic churches. More broadly the term is used in a wide number of contexts for an image, picture, or representation; it is a sign or likeness that stands for an object by signifying or representing it either concretely or by analogy, as in semiotics; by extension, icon is also used, particularly in modern culture, in the general sense of symbol i.e. a name, face, picture, edifice or even a person readily recognized as having some well-known significance or embodying certain qualities: one thing, an image or depiction, that represents something else of greater significance through literal or figurative meaning, usually associated with religious, cultural, political, or economic standing. Apophatic Prayer Apophatic prayer, as distinct from kataphatic prayer, avoids the use of imaging. This form of praying operates from the premise that images distract one's attention from or distort reality. . . . apophatic prayer . . . refers to prayer without images. Here, you simply call to

mind that Gods loving presence saturates all things, and so you simply rest in a kind of general attentiveness to God, open to receiving whatever God wants to give. You come to know God as the Ground of your own being, and the presence at the heart of all things. No words can express this, and so apophatic prayer emphasizes loving silence and unknowing as distinctive features. Personality Type & Temperament Prayers which one are you?

ISTJ ESTJ ISFJ ESFJ Ignatian Prayer ESTP ISTP ISFP ESFP Franciscan Prayer Four Spiritual Traditions based on their Jungian Personality Types. Ignatian This temperament follows the spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola. The prayer style that St. Ignatius uses, and which he also trained his

companion Jesuits to do, was to use the senses of the imagination while meditating on on a gospel scene. This type of prayer puts one in the past - in the biblical scene itself - and makes us note the sights and sounds we experience and associate with the scene. Because the gospel scene is fixed and there is a succession of events, this prayer comes out to be very structured. Ignatian (Sensing-Judging) Prayer and Spirituality Remember, the Ignatian Model projects you into different scenes and experiences of the life of Jesus. The spirituality presented with the liturgical calendar of Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent and Easter is a good example of this type of prayer life! The pattern is especially appealing to the Sensing-Judging personality and can be found reflected in the Epistle of James where a sense of duty is strongly presented. He insisted that Christianity should keep faithful to the ancient traditions of the Jews. We can also see this in the Gospel of Matthew, where

the evangelist emphasizes how Jesus is the fulfillment of the Old Testament hope and the continuity we have with the past in the Hebrew Scriptures. A deliberate, conscious effort has to be made to develop hope and trust and to look on the optimistic side of the Good News of the Gospel. Frequent meditation or reflection on the Resurrection of Jesus rather than constant recall of the Passion and Death is recommended to theSensingJudging personality. Ignatian Prayer Suggestion Read Luke 18:9-14. Put yourself in turn in the places of the Pharisee and the Publican. Does your ordinary prayer resemble that of the Pharisee or the Publican? What changes are needed to make your prayer more in accord with the teachings of Jesus and the example of the Publican? Imagine yourself as the Pharisee standing in the front of the church on a Sunday morning praising and thanking God that you are not like the rest of the people or like some poor wretches you know. Does this resemble any experiences in your own life? Does your prayer ever fall into the category of the prayer of the Pharisee?

How can you become more like the Publican? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IhZlKyHY1I Is this you? Sensing-Judging ISTJ ESTJ ISFJ ESFJ God, help me to begin

and help me to do it exactly RIGHT! LORD, GIVE ME PATIENCE AND I MEAN RIGHT NOW! Augustinian This temperament follows the spirituality of St. Augustine of Hippo. In this temperament, the prayer style involves one's intuition and feelings. While Ignatian prayer is structured, Augustinian

prayer is more free-form. Combined with feelings, it can really lead one to heights of spiritual consolation. Many of the saints who were canonized in our Church used very much this form of prayer. Augustinian (iNtuitive-Feeling) Prayer and Spirituality with Augustinian Prayer Suggestions N-F Prayer and Temperament typology Augustinian Spirituality makes use of your imagination by transposing the words of the Scriptures and applies them to your situation today. This provides you with a personal reflection on the presence of God in his Word. Luke's Gospel is of particular interest to the iNtuitive-Feeling personality type. Jesus' compassion for sinners... for women... and outcasts finds a responsive chord. Of all the temperaments, the iNtuitive-Feeling personality needs more time in prayer and quiet meditation than any of the others. For the iNtuitiveFeeling personality such time is not a luxury but a necessity as far as

personal development and relationship with God is concerned. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4nBKuHsUdw Augustinian Prayer & Spirituality iNtuitive-Feeling To be fully effective, Augustinian Prayer should consist of a dialogue between God and oneself. The four steps of Lectio Divina can help here... First... READ listen attentively to what God is telling you in the words of Scripture by endeavoring to read between the lines to discern the deeper meaning contained therein. Second... MEDITATE reflect prayerfully upon their meaning and try to apply this eternal wisdom to your situation today. Third... PRAY respond to God's word by appropriate personal feelings and dialogue. Fourth... CONTEMPLATE

remain quiet and still in order to be open to any new insights that your iNtuitive faculty brings forth. Is this you? Feeling INFP Lord, help me to finish everything I sta iNtuitiveINFJ ENFJ ENFP

In this type of prayer, one's senses and perception are well-activated. This type of prayer would be best done outdoors where one can be in touch with nature, and can move freely from one place to another. Those who are familiar with this form of prayer usually pray their best at retreats and recollections where there are plenty of trees, plants and birds within the gardens or shrines of the retreat house. Franciscan (Sensing---Perceiving) Prayer and Spirituality

Franciscan Spirituality is characterized by its application. It is very popular among ordinary people, those men and women of action who want and need to do things for others. Acts of loving service can be a most effective form of prayer. Franciscan Spirituality is very optimistic and sees the beauty, goodness, and love of God everywhere. When you consider that a Sensing-Perceiving person like Francis of Assisi makes contact with God primarily through their sense impressions what we see, smell, touch, hear and taste it would follow that since the Incarnation is the visible, audible, tangible presence of God upon earth, the SensingPerceiving personality could relate quite well to Jesus' life and teachings through the parables. The Sensing-Perceiving personality type does not respond well to the symbolic but is primarily interested in the real and literal. Franciscan Prayer makes full use of the five senses and will be flexible and free-flowing Franciscan Prayer Suggestion The Sensing-Perceiving persons dislike formal prayer and prefers a free-flowing informal communion with God. Think of the person in the world that you love the most.

Ask yourself the following question: How can I see the presence of God in that person? Spend some time praising and thanking God for giving so much goodness, beauty, grace, etc. to that person. Spend some time thanking God for the gift of love whereby you are able to love that person and that person is able to love you.

PARTIES & DANCING Thomistic This temperament of prayer follows the spirituality of St. Thomas Aquinas - a member of the Dominican Order. In this type of prayer, logic and the cause and effect principle is applied to the doctrines and truths of our faith. A lot of our thinking faculty is used in this prayer. The prayer progresses from one proposition to another, until a logical conclusion or an ethical demand is arrived at. Thomistic (iNtuitive---Thinking) Prayer and Spirituality The emphasis will naturally fall to the Meditation time in Thomistic Prayer. You consider a virtue, a fault, a theological truth and "walk around it", studying it from every possible angle. To enable you to get the full grasp on the topic chosen for Thomistic Prayer, it is recommended

that you use the seven auxiliary questions: WHAT, WHY, HOW, WHO, WHERE, WHEN, WITH WHAT HELPS and apply each of them to the topic selected. Thomistic Prayer suggestion Read Mark 15: 10 or Acts 13:48. Consider the fault of envy. Reflect upon its meaning. St. Thomas defines envy as the evil sadness one feels at the success of a rival or peer. Have you ever felt envy? When? Why? What did you do about it? Have you ever suffered as a result of the envy of someone else? What did you do about it? How was envy the cause of the death of Jesus? Why do people experience envy? Why are envious people often unaware of their envy?

How might you discover whether you still harbour secret envy towards others? What might you do to avoid being envious of others? How is love the opposite of envy? End the period of prayer with fervent petitions to God asking Him to help you discover your secret envy and to help you overcome it.
