Pope Emeritus Benedict’s school of prayer continues with prayer in the Apostolic Age.

Studying the Acts of the Apostles, Pope Benedict XVI shows how prayer – the living memory of the Risen Jesus – has always been a fundamental ingredient of the Christian life, both individually and in community.

It is through assiduous and persevering prayer that the soul opens up to the action of the Holy Spirit – as Mary, Mother of Jesus, the apostle St Peter and St Stephen the first Martyr, all eloquently testify.

In this collection of catecheses, the Pope Emeritus used all his learning and pastoral experience to help show how prayer is the source of all the other work for good the early Church performed.

He shows how the prayerful example of the saints and martyrs of this crucial period is as important today as it has ever been.
