With God Alone: Contemplative Prayer For Everyday People

With God Alone: Contemplative Prayer For Everyday People



Catholic prayer has an identity crisis. In the modern quest for “spirituality” rather than religion, non-Christian Eastern forms of prayer are all the rage. They’re being promoted as rare and exotic while Christian prayer is presented as dull and old-fashioned. Nothing could be further from the truth – and this simple little book explains why. Authentic Catholic prayer is a supernatural adventure, a lifelong journey into the very heart of God, a journey that was meant for everyone. Originally published as Lord Teach Us to Pray, this expanded edition contains a collection of articles written for The Catholic Standard & Times newspaper of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and brings together a wealth of knowledge on the subject of Catholic prayer – from vocal prayer to infused contemplation – from the great mystical doctors and spiritual masters of our Church. Presented in easy-to-understand language, the reader will quickly learn that growth in prayer is not limited to the chosen few. Anyone who is open to love can go the distance in prayer!
