A Simple Book That Changed My Ability to Pray and Become Closer to God
I never write critiques but had to for this one. So many books on sprituality inspire, encourage and help us along in our journey of faith but many fail in really helping us to pray. The Spiritual Exercises taught by St. Ignatius of Loyola and the Jesuits have been great for the retreat centers but often the method was too achedemic for me to grasp. Simply put, this book help me be quiet, to be aware of my surroundings and to beging to "listen" and to know Jesus Christ more fully. I stopped talking to God and learned how to listen. I just bought the companion CD set of Dan Schutte's music and realized this is the person who wrote most of my favorite songs we sing in church. I started from the beginning with the music. Oh my, what a treasure the book and the 30 songs are that go with the 30 exercises. I feel like I'm on a spiritual retreat. I gave this to my daughter and now she the other mothers are using the book and music with their prayer group.
