A bird’s-eye view

If we take a bird’s-eye view of the march along the path of life with God, from vocal prayer to more profound communication, we will have the following general outline. In the first stages, God leaves the initiative to the individual, who functions according to the norms of psychology. God’s participation is rare. He leaves it to the individual to find the means and supports, as if the individual were the only carpenter in the house. And although it is true that, in these first stages, divine consolations may abound, prayer appears to be an edifice exclusively supported by human scaffolding.

Sensing your Hidden Presence

Offers a detailed contribution to those readers that want to initiate or recuperate the experience of God and to those others that yearn to advance in the fathomless mystery of God.

Sensing Your Hidden Presence reveals the total journey towards God, from the first steps to the depths of contemplation.


The Prayer and Life Workshops (PLW) are a new form of EVANGELIZATION. More ALIVE and with a POSITIVE vision. It’s a more vibrant and active presentation of Jesus, which possesses a greater ADAPTATION to the necessities of TODAY’S SOCIETY and what people really need.


Ignacio Larrañaga, a Capuchin priest, writer and evangelizer, who is considered by many a “modern day prophet” or a “21st century mystic” He is the founder of the Prayer and Life Workshops (PLW). His main labor has consisted of leaving, to the world, thousands of lay people prepared and dedicated to teaching deep and personal prayer, which allows a daily encounter with the Lord, in day by day, through a methodology that is entirely based on the experience of the Love of the Father and the wonders that He does in us.


Your Spirit, Lord, is the one who attracts us and for that reason we seek You. It is your attractive strength that makes us desire You and seek You.

I therefore begin these moments of deep intimacy with You, with the certainty that You are alive and present in me.

From the 6th to 9th of June, some guides of the Prayer and Life Workshops, have had an encounter with more than 25 seminarians and trainers/coaches in the Diocesan Seminary of Seville, presenting everything related to the PLW spirituality. This initiative that has taken place in the Local Coordination of Seville, has made possible that a large number of “future priests” had the chance to hear and live the eclesial service PLW carries out within the Church. There were talks, meditations, silencing exercises, dynamics and different methods of prayer. It has been a wonderful opportunity for us, being the first time that this was experienced in this National Coordination of Southern Spain. We thank God for all that has been lived during these days, hoping that it was a good time to “sow the seed“ for the good and future of the local church of Seville.

RETREAT. JESUS CENTRE OF LIFE In this National Coordination of Southern Spain there were two important celebrations last May. One has been the Annual Retreat, JESUS CENTRE OF LIFE, held on the 13th, 14th and 15th of May. This retreat was given at El Puerto de Santa Maria (Cadiz). In this beautiful retreat the guides were able to look at Jesus, listen to His words, meditate on His reactions. It has been an unforgettable experience. Walking with Jesus, is already an experience, but deepening, living and experiencing His abandonment and detachment in silence and solitude, has actually been like touching His "unconditional love", that which never departs or surrenders despite setbacks. The place of the retreat, right by the sea and with a lot of space for solitude, helped to live that silence, full of love, where the Encounter takes place. "Everything has been joy and tenderness with our brothers. To be able to be reunited in these difficult times is a gift that fills us with gratitude," is what the participants said an the end of the retreat. SENDING FORTH MASS Another celebration has been the Sending Forth Mass of a new guide, Amparo Cabrera Penada, in the Local Coordination of Jaen, on the 21th of May. We wish this new sister abundant blessings in this mission to which the Lord has called.
