Praying is something very personal and each of us develops our own way to communicate with Christ. And like many I like to find out how others go about...Yes, just plain curiosity on my part!
Catholic Company recently gave me the opportunity to review this CD Audio Set of 4 discs, each featuring 2 tracks called Communion with Christ, Practical Prayer. The first is always daunting and the second, well I like practical things!
Let's face it, from the lay person point of view, stress and often family challenges dominates our daily life and prayer is not always easy. I cannot begin to imagine how hard it must be for a Priest for i.e. with the many responsabilities resting on their shoulders.
In this series Deacon James Keating takes us through step by step actions allowing us to come before our Lord and communicate our needs in a effective but simple way.
He speaks with quiet authority yet in a loving way which tugs at your heart and opens the door to understanding God's grace.
For each medidation there is a list of questions you may use for personal reflection or for family/group discussion. For i.e. What does it mean to pray in the name of Jesus? Where does Christian joy come from?
Another favourite: How shall we understand true Christian healing and its relation to communion with Christ?
Communion with Christ: Practical Prayer would indeed be an excellent addition to any study group/Church library. It not only offers practical advice on how to pray but shows you also what to expect during praying time in relation to happiness and salvation.
I give this one 4 1/2 stars!
