St. Augustine Answers 101 Questions On Prayer

Of all the Church’s saints, not one expresses the longing for God more beautifully, or explores the nature of prayer more helpfully, than St. Augustine. His words speak to us today as freshly as they did to his contemporaries.

Although St. Augustine wrote many books, he never wrote one devoted to prayer alone. So from over 200 works, Fr. Cliff Ermatinger has gathered and translated Augustine’s teachings on prayer, and now presents them here in a simple question-and-answer format.

What emerges is nothing less than a rich new “catechism on prayer” by one of the Church’s greatest saints!

The Prayer of the Presence of God

For nearly a thousand years, monks of the Carthusian Order have withdrawn from the world so they can place themselves in the presence of God.

In these pages, the monk Augustin Guillerand reveals the secret of the Carthusian’s remarkable prayer. Obviously, this way of praying excludes quick Our Father’s and hasty Hail Mary’s, but it also requires that we do more than pause and say our prayers slowly. In fact, the Carthusians know that the prayer of the presence of God isn’t primarily a question of speed or even of speech. Like love, it’s not so much a deed as an attitude; a habit of tranquil listening that allows God to enter our souls by all paths and to establish His presence there.

Though this is no step-by-step manual (listening can’t be reduced to steps), you’ll learn where you must begin and how to proceed if you’re finally to bring to maturity in your own soul the habit of tranquil listening that’s essential for all those who would know God and love Him as they ought.
