307. Prayer and Spirituality. This course explores our relationship with the living God, which we call prayer. God continuously calls, we respond. Our Christian spirituality is centered in Jesus Christ and guided by the Holy Spirit. It is also modeled by the acceptance of Mary to the call of God, the Our Father and its seven petitions revealing the heart of the Gospel, and the Eucharist as the prayer of the community.
