The world's largest, most popular and most linked to collection of Catholic prayers on the internet.

Prayers are your tools to answering God's call.

On March 25, 1999, Pope John-Paul II, the spiritual leader of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, called upon the world's 404,000 priests to teach the faithful how to pray. In obedience to the holy Pontiff, "The Catholic Doors Ministry" has put together thousands of Catholic prayers to compile "A Treasure Of Catholic Prayers."

Sweet Hour of Prayer! Or Not? How do You Experience Prayer?

Posted by Site Webmaster on Friday, November 21, 2014, In : Our Lady's Promise 
How do you think of prayer? Is it another thing you “have to do” among many other things on your list? Or is prayer a time when you refrain from doing? Is prayer a requirement you regret or a rest you relish? What is prayer for you?

The danger in answering questions like these is that we may answer them the way we think they “should” be answered rather than in an honest way. Many struggle with prayer and experience it with a lot of negativity: boredom, distraction, drudgery, and so...

Peter. Upon this rock I Build My Church

Posted by Site Webmaster on Monday, November 10, 2014, In : Evangelization 

Because Peter was made the foundation of the Church, there were practical implications: it gave him a special place or primacy among the apostles. As the passages below demonstrate, the early Church Fathers clearly recognized this. 

Clement of Alexandria

"[T]he blessed Peter, the chosen, the preeminent, the first among the disciples, for whom alone with himself the Savior paid the tribute [Matt. 17:27], quickly g.asped and understood their meaning. And what does he say? ‘Behold, we ...

True Worship – Holy Mass and the Eucharist

Posted by Site Webmaster on Sunday, November 9, 2014, In : The Eucharist 

The Eucharist, the Mass, the Lord’s Supper, the Breaking of the Bread, the Divine Liturgy. Whatever it has been called throughout history, the sharing of bread and wine has been seen by nearly all Christians to be an important celebration of the Christian Faith. For most of those outside of the Catholic fold, this sharing has been understood as only symbolic of some indefinable sharing in the life and work of Jesus; some have gone so far as to abandon wine in fa...

Becoming Catholic

Why Become Catholic?

G.K. Chesterton once said, “The difficulty of explaining ‘why I am a Catholic’is that there are ten thousand reasons all amounting to one reason: that Catholicism is true.

The Catholic Church is the “pillar and bulwark of truth” (1 Timothy 3:15) because it is the Church founded by Jesus Christ who is God.  2,000 years ago the Son of God became incarnate on earth; that is, he became fully man and took on human flesh while remaining fully divine.  Jesus Chr...

Our Ladys Holy Rosary

Posted by Site Webmaster on Friday, November 7, 2014, In : Our Lady's Promise 
The Rosary
In some form, the Rosary has been a part of Catholic prayer life for more than nine centuries.
The Virgin Mary appeared to St. Dominic in 1208 and revealed the Rosary to him, asking that
her devotion be spread throughout the world.
St. Dominic responded by preaching the Rosary, introducing it widely. After about a century,
however, interest in and devotion to the Rosary declined significantly. After the Black Plague
swept across Europe, the Mary chose Blessed Alan de la Roche to reestabl...
