Learning the Virtues that Lead You to God: There’s more to goodness than keeping the Commandments: you’ve got to cultivate virtue, too, so that you please God in what you do — not merely in what you don’t do. In these pages, you’ll learn countless ways to grow in such virtue. The wise Msgr. Romano Guardini, a German priest hailed by Pope Benedict XVI as “a great figure” who “aspired to the truth of God and to the truth of man,” leads you from a consideration of virtue in itself to a discussion of each of the key virtues that will make you holy and lead you to God.
The Art of Praying: Where did you learn to pray? At your mother's knee? From the nun or brother who taught your religion class? Has your understanding of prayer matured since then, or do you simply pray, year after year, as you were taught as a child? No wonder most people have so many erroneous notions about prayer. No wonder our prayers are still far from what they should be. This remarkable book offers practical ways you can improve your prayers today and grow closer to God. Simple, direct, and profound, The Art of Praying is a helpful guide for the average person in the pew and even for those rare few who are far advanced in prayer. The topics include: how to pray well even when your heart is empty, determining the prayer schedule that's right for you, the posture of prayer, and much more.
