The Simplest Prayer: A Book of Love and Faith

by The Irish Franciscans

Paperback(Mass Market Paperback)



People are searching for a sense of comfort and meaning in their lives, but sometimes we don't know how to pray or where to begin.
In The Simplest Prayer, the Irish Franciscans show us how to achieve a sense of calm and peace by incorporating prayer into our lives in the simplest way and with the simplest prayer - to Jesus, and, in doing so, show us how we can open our lives to acceptance, love, happiness and inner peace.
Based on a website created by the Poor Clares and the Irish Franciscans for the Year of the Holy Name of Jesus, the book will include reflections and thoughts from the Irish Franciscans on Jesus' words and how they can relate to us in our daily lives, along with scripture quotations for use in times of loss, grief, gratitude, happiness, self-doubt and depression, and practical advice on meditation and mindfulness. The Simplest Prayer will show us how, by introducing moments of calm into our everyday lives, we can achieve a sense of happiness and peace.

About the Author

The vision of St Francis was a simple one: he saw himself as living in a universe that reflected the beauty of God, sharing it with other creatures who he regarded as his brothers and sisters. The Irish Franciscan Province was established in 1230 and for almost 800 years the Irish friars have striven to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ, following the example of Francis of Assisi, and minister to God's people throughout Ireland and in many other lands. It is their belief that the message and vision of Francis and Clare of Assisi has never grown old - it still has the power to bring people closer to God and each other, in peace.
