WATCH: Mother Teresa on Prayer

Sometimes, it’s best to let a saint speak for you.

For 160 years Benedictines in Atchison, Kansas, at St. Benedict’s Abbey and Mount St. Scholastica have built a great legacy of prayer. As Saint Mother Teresa says in the video: “The family that prays together, stays together!”

That is true of a family, an abbey, a monastery, a college — and a Church. Be inspired by the minute-long presentation above from St.  Benedict’s Abbey, which is located on the campus of Benedictine College.
