The Basic Book of Catholic Prayer
Publisher: Sophia Institute Press
Publication Date: December 1, 1999
Fr. Lawrence Lovasik here clears away misunderstandings that many people have about prayer and shows you innumerable ways you can avoid common obstacles and deepen your prayer life, no matter how much or how little you may have prayed before.
You'll learn what prayer is, why it's necessary, and how to practice the essential forms of Catholic prayer. You'll discover how the Church's sacraments fortify your prayer and how prayer, in turn, enhances your reception of the sacraments. You'll find out how to bring to your own prayers the qualities that make prayer effective. Your prayers will become more heartfelt, more focused, and more full of love for God.
Soon your prayer will fill you with a divine peace and joy that no one will be able to take from you. You'll achieve the glorious aim of all prayer: union with God!
