Basic Prayers

This section includes some of the most familiar prayers of the Catholic tradition.  These prayers have nurtured the faithful for generations, yet they still speak to us.  Some of these prayers you may wish to learn "by heart" so that they become part of your daily living.  Other prayers may be less familiar.  These open for new generations the treasures of the Church's rich tradition of prayer.
