Spain is the 52nd largest country in the world, located in the southwestern region of Europe. It ranks as as the 29th most populous nation, with 47,737,941 inhabitants as of July, 2014, as reported in the World Factbook of the Central Intelligence Agency. Around 94 percent of its population is Roman Catholic. The act of praying is deeply rooted in Catholicism. Every adherent to the Catholic Faith believes that one way of communicating with God is through prayers, where devotees can offer their reverence, fervent gratitude, penitence or petitions to the Almighty. The Lord's Prayer, considered as the greatest of all traditional prayers, was taught by Jesus Christ to His disciples. Another customary Catholic prayer is "Glory Be," which is translated into Spanish as "Gloria al Padre, al Hijo y al Espiritu Santo. Como era en el principio, ahora y siempre, por los siglos de los siglos. Amen."
