Serious for every Christian, more so for every Catholic

Patrology (Study of Church Fathers) guides Fr. Gabriel Bunge O.S.B., a Benedictine Priest and Monk, as to how a person can actually pray! If you are interested in "Personal Prayers," this book is for you. These days, many priests reduce spirituality to nothing more than "social activism." While, the fundamental pedestal of charity and love is what is expected of in each Christian, nevertheless, prayer is the summit of one's own spirituality. Fr. Gabriel beautifully argues this point. In fact, his opening ponderances on how while the debate of faith "evaporating" in the Western World is gaining ground, a paradoxical surge in books on Spirituality is on the rise too. So he ponders if faith is actually "evaporating."

Fr. Gabriel also explains how "theory" and "practice" blend with each other and often one cannot stop with "practice" alone. If people were contended with only serving their neighbors and were good to all, then why is there an increase need in these people for contemplative mode of prayers, he asks? Why then is there a thirst for "spirituality" and "individual prayer?", he asks. He argues, that these are innate traits within a human-being. Prayer is a dialogue between the soul of a person and its God. Deriving the inspiration from the ancient Church Fathers, is a sure way to enhance one's own relationship with God.

I would recommend that you get this book within the next three days if you are a Christian, and get it right now, if you are a Catholic.

This is one of those rare gems that you find once in a great while. For the person who in serious about their personal prayer life this book is a must have. Father Bunge critiques the problems of modern Catholic prayer and lays out a plan for individual prayer and shows the basis on the early church fathers. This is an informative and practical book! I highly recommend it.
