More Prayer and Meditation, Spirituality


This reader-friendly handbook introduces ten of the most prominent traditions—including Franciscan, Cistercian, Ignatian, and Mystic spirituality—and recounts a brief history of each tradition's founder, highlights its characteristics, and provides a prayer or spiritual practice for each one. A chapter titled "What's Right for Me?" guides spiritual seekers in discerning which path to prayer is the best match for their personality, needs, and circumstances.


"A good map."

"Pat Fosarelli's book is to the spiritual life what a good map is to the traveler: a look at the big picture that allows pilgrims to know something of the terrain they will traverse. More specifically, she shows us not only the paths, but also those who forged them: saints and mystics whose thirst for God drove them, under the gentle but insistent voice of God, into previously unexplored places."

Tim Muldoon, Author of The Ignatian Workout
