Reviews

"This wonderful volume is a treasury of the multi-faceted jewel that is Catholic prayer. It is a rare book that can bring together so many gifted authors to reflect on spiritual truths that are the foundation of our commitment to live as disciples of Jesus Christ. Whether you are a student of Catholic spirituality and prayer-traditions or simply someone seeking to enrich your prayer life, this will be an invaluable resource in your study and search." Silas S. Henderson, M.T.S., author, retreat leader, and managing editor of "Deacon Digest"" "This splendid and hefty compendium covers the breadth and plumbs the depths of Catholic prayer.... Wicks's introduction characterizes the Catholic prayer tradition as rich; this handbook is a mine of those rich resources and deserves a place on library, seminary, and individual shelves." -- Publishers Weekly "In every area of life we stand in need of mentors and models. Robert J. Wicks has found forty-five of them, individuals who write out of experience, sharing their love for and understanding of prayer. What a gift we have here. A transformative book!" -- Robert F. Morneau, Pastor of Resurrection Parish, Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus of Green Bay "This wonderful volume is a treasury of the multi-faceted jewel that is Catholic prayer.

Whether you are a student of Catholic spirituality and prayer-traditions or simply someone seeking to enrich your prayer life, this will be an invaluable resource in your study and search." -- Silas S. Henderson, M.T.S., author, retreat leader, and managing editor of Deacon Digest"Although the wise advice of Dom Chapman, 'pray as you can and don't pray as you can not' still remains excellent spiritual counsel, this volume is filled with over 45 contributions from various writers from a multitude of traditions ranging from Carmelite to Salesian and including Jesuitical, Benedictine, Dominican, and Mercy approaches. Wicks gives a rare look into other prayer possibilities to be considered. This scholarly, practical, and experiential book arose from the question 'what if there were a single resource for adult Catholics, both pastors, spiritual directors?' Not finding any such reference, Robert Wicks, a renowned author, speaker, spiritual mentor, and psychologist developed this volume. A great resource for spiritual directors, teachers, pastors, seminarians in a course on prayer as well as adults in prayer groups." --Sr. Mary Denis Maher, CSA, PhD, Archivist, Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine; Professor Emerita, English Dept.
