This week’s readings speak of the centrality of prayer in the Christian life. The Catechism describes several different types of prayer such as blessing, petition, intercession, thanksgiving, and praise. Please select one of these types of prayer and offer a descriiption and specific example of it. How might this type of prayer help one develop an attitude or way of acting that connects to the commandments?

You may also wish to include meditation or other research connected to personal reflection that fits your own worldview.
This week we read about our finitude as humans. We know that life includes suffering and death. Most of us know that any relationship comes with not only love and joy, but also pain and suffering. How do our readings from this week or prior modules reflect on finding meaning in the midst of suffering? In the Christian tradition, there is a connection between Jesus’ suffering and our own trials. How can suffering connect to meaning and our spiritual lives? If you don’t practice a faith, you may wish to reflect on the importance of suffering from your personal worldview in dialogue with the readings.
