go deeper

Our aim through our work with Pray-as-you-go is to encourage you the listener into a conversation and deeper relationship with God. As well as our daily downloadable prayer, we also endeavour to provide you with further prayer resources and special retreats as a way of developing your personal prayer life. 



Breathing and Body Exercises

If you have time, these four-minute breathing and body exercises can be a useful preparation for prayer, helping you to develop the stillness, focus and attentiveness that you need. They're also an excellent way to prepare for any other kinds of prayer you engage in.



The Rosary

Following the success of our Stations of the Cross, we launched a set of Rosary Meditations in October 2013. These meditations explore the four sets of five Mysteries of the Rosary - Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious, Luminous - all of which draw out different aspects of the life of Jesus. Each meditation features the famous prayers of the Rosary, but also offers time for personal reflection and prayer.



The Examen

St Ignatius recommended the Examen, an ancient Christian prayer, to all Jesuit priests and brothers. The prayer aims to allow you to understand how God works in your life through your thoughts, actions, and feelings. We have recently produced a number of Examen prayers which we will be using on rotation with our new website.



Stations of the Cross

The traditional devotion of the Stations of the Cross are generally associated with Fridays in Lent, where Catholic churches around the world pray together and walk the way of the Cross remembering the events leading up to the death and burial of Jesus. These ten scriptural meditations follow a style approved by Pope Emeritus Benedict in 2007.



Caritas in Veritate

Caritas in Veritate is the third Encyclical of Pope Benedict XVI, and the first concerning Catholic Social Teaching. It was signed on June 29, 2009, and was published on July 7, 2009. The encyclical is concerned with the problems of global development and progress towards the common good, arguing that both Love and Truth are essential elements of an effective response. These reflections help us to understand and explore some of its themes.



Imaginative Contemplation

Saint Ignatius believed that God could speak to us just as clearly in our imagination as through our thoughts and our memories. In his Spiritual Exercises he writes of contemplation as a very active way of engaging your feelings, emotions, and senses to place yourself in the scene described. These are special meditations to enable you to encounter Jesus in a personal way.
