This Week's Focus: Pray Always

Pray always: is a message he gives to us, knowing we have mortgages and student loans, car payments and grocery bills. Pray always:  may seem easy enough for a priest to thunder about from the pulpit. You may even be tempted to shrug it off as rhetorical flourish… dismissed and forgotten before you’ve cleared the church parking lot
