Praying with Katie: God, My Cat, and Meby Don Holt, Don Holt
At a time when Don Holt's life was full of difficult problems to worry about and he endured many sleepless nights, he spent several hours each day praying, meditating, and writing in his journal. As he sat on the sofa writing, his cat, Katie, would join him, leap into his lap, rub against his pen, and sniff at his face. At first he was annoyed with this interruption of his important spiritual work. But one day she climbed onto his shoulder and went to sleep. It struck him that this was precisely the relationship he wished he had with God--that metaphorically he could just lay his head on the Divine Shoulder and get a good night's sleep.
Holt began to observe Katie's other behaviors, wondering if they, too, might be sources of spiritual insight. They were, and he wrote about them. These collected reflections are presented in Praying with Katie, a profound commentary on the meaning of God, faith, and life.
