|Overview||Searching for a more meaningful, profound prayer life? The Treasures of God offers the key to unlocking our spiritual treasures. Is it something unfamiliar, something no one has ever seen before? No. Raymond Gunzel, s.P., uses old favorites-tried and true prayer practices-as windows into contemplation. The key he offers is a way to take a new look at our spiritual foundation, a way to open our eyes and hearts to the beloved words of our own tradition. |
Throughout the course of this book, he writes, I hope to show how all our religious practices ultimately lead us to a relationship with God's living Word.
With chapters on Lectio Divina, Centering Prayer, the Jesus Prayer, the Rosary, the Stations of the Cross, and the Eucharist, The Treasures of God offers a taste of the promise for union with God, bringing our ancient heritage into the present day. This book is a helpful guide in seeking a deeper, more fulfilling relationship with God, and a fresh experience of prayer that calls for compassion for every aspect of God's creation.
