Within the Catholic tradition, there are many ways to pray. Yet, while there are smaller books, books on praying with saints and contemporary figures, volumes assembling groups of individual prayers, or prayer within one particular strand of Catholic spirituality, there is no truly comprehensive work available on how to learn, practice, and teach ways of prayer in the broad Roman Catholic tradition. This handbook breaks new ground, offering forty important voices on forty essential topics for a comprehensive look at the learning, practice, and teaching of all that it means to pray in the Catholic tradition. Topics include:
Types of spirituality (including Carmelite, Franciscan, Ignatian, Dominican and other major schools) and how they frame prayer and prayerfulness
Liturgical prayer
New Testament scriptural approaches to prayer
Praying with the Psalms
Contemplation
Liturgy of the Hours
Conversational prayer
Resistances to prayer
Journaling as prayer
Enhancing a spirit of prayerfulness
Praying in Ordinary Time
Praying through grief, suffering, loss and pain
Dealing with distractions in prayer
The essentials of Catholic prayer; and much more.
