A practical yet rich guide for helping busy people develop a regular and deeper prayer life. 167 pages.
St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, espoused the ideal of becoming “contemplatives in action”. He was convinced that contemplation (a deep awareness and appropriation of the unconditional love of God) should affect our actions. Fr. Spitzer shows there are five essential means through which this ideal can be attained, particularly for busy people:
(1) the Holy Eucharist;
(2) spontaneous prayer,
(3) the Beatitudes;
(4) partnership with the Holy Spirit; and
(5) the contemplative life itself.
This book is a “jump start” to a deeper spiritual life for today’s active people. A great tool for examining Happiness Level 4.
