ROSARYVILLE

Living the Lord's Prayer

with Fr. Albert Haase, OFM
April 8, 2017

We invite you to join us for another great journey with Fr. Albert Haase, OFM at Rosaryville on "Psalm Saturday." The event will be followed by Mass. 

When asked for a teaching on prayer, Jesus did not respond with a method or technique. Rather, he responded with words that captured the essence of his teaching and lifestyle. Down through history, many have looked upon the Lord’s Prayer as more than simply a way to pray. Tertullian, a late 2nd century priest of the Christian community of Carthage in North Africa, referred to this prayer as a “summary of the entire Gospel.”

Based upon Fr. Albert’s bestselling book, Living the Lord’s Prayer: The Way of the Disciple, this day of recollection on Saturday, April 8, will focus on the Our Father as a way to live. With his distinctively inspirational and engaging preaching style, Fr. Albert will help deepen your appreciation and love for the prayer Jesus taught us and the life he challenges us to live.

Ordained a Franciscan priest in 1983, Albert Haase, OFM, is a popular preacher, teacher, spiritual director and radio talk show guest. A former missionary to mainland China for over eleven years, he is the award-winning author of nine books on popular spirituality and the presenter on four bestselling DVDs. He has trained spiritual directors for ten years. He lives in Texas. Visit his website at www.AlbertOFM.org
