Is your life running out of control? Work, sports, picking up the kids, getting to Mass, doing the shopping. . . every day you are barraged with responsibilities. With such a busy schedule, you may struggle to put God first in your life, while distractions of various kinds can take you off track.
Pray like a monk! In this book, Fr. Jerome Kodell, a Benedictine monk, shares the fruit of a long life of prayer as he helps you sort through your priorities. His short reflections touch on a variety of topics—the keys to prayer, how to pray in suffering, the tremendous gift of the word of God, meditations on the reality of Lord's great love and mercy for you, and practical tips to keep God first in your life. These reflections will help you change from a person overcome by the busyness of life to a person of peace in the midst of all that surrounds you. You'll grow in humility and other virtues, and experience the Lord's compassion for you.
