to read his talk to the Worth Conference March 1971

On 10th March 1971, Abbot Victor Farwell gave this talk on prayer as one of the groundbreaking Worth Conferences which examined the implications of the Second Vatican Council. When people arrived as visitors to the Lay Community, this paper was given to them as an introduction to prayer in the tradition of Worth and of its mother house Downside. 50 years later this paper has lost none of its freshness or relevance and so we offer it as part of the LCSB50 celebrations, and also as an encouragement to daily private prayer.
