Did you know that Father Kirby had published a book?!
He will be signing copies of his brand new book, “Lord, Teach Us to Pray” on Friday, May 23rd from 12:00 noon until 5:00 p.m. at St. Benedict’s Catholic Store at 900 W. Poinsett Street in Greer. The folks at St. Benedict’s cordially invite us all to attend; you can view their Facebook event here.
Echoing the petition of the disciples, Lord, teach us to pray, this book guides the reader through the challenges of discipleship and the various stages of prayer. Fr. Kirby lovingly and expertly examines this crucial petition, shedding light on its three parts: the call to follow the Lord, to live virtuously, and to pray, while laying out a course for growing in discipleship and strengthening the interior life.

Praise for Father Kirby’s book:
“Fr. Kirby has created a valuable tool in assisting people to develop and deepen their prayer life. This beautiful work on prayer is useful for all people serious about their faith journey, especially young adults seeking to discern the direction of their response to God. It offers a “roadmap” for developing a satisfying prayer life.” — Most Reverend Robert E. Guglielmone, DD, Bishop of Charleston
“Fr. Kirby has written a guide that is steeped in scripture and that truly helps the reader learn who Jesus is, how to do what he asks, and how to be in a deeper relationship with him. This book is a very helpful resource for anyone who seeks to improve his or her spiritual life. I highly recommend it.” — Fr. Robert Barron, STD, Founder, Word on Fire Catholic Ministries; Author, Catholicism
