Praying in the Age of Twitter: Confessions of a Failed Pray-er

A place for contemplation on the grounds of Christ the King Priory, a Benedictine monastery in Schuyler, Nebraska.

I have never been very adept at prayer. I’m probably one of the only people ever to flunk a retreat on praying in daily life. I couldn’t seem to carve out regular meetings with my spiritual director, much less time to write a prayer journal. Which is why I love staying at monasteries.
