What better time than now? May 10, 2007
Having read this author's book on his interpretation of The Rule of Benedict, I thought I knew what to expect in this offering. Fortunately, I was correct. He has a very easy-going, comfortable way of presentation, and it shows. Reading these accounts of folks from all walks of life and of many and varied circumstance and beliefs, it was refreshing to know how important faith is to people, no matter their religion. There is no question we can find the time to pray or worship or connect with whomever we believe in. The trick is finding the way to do it. After reading this, it would be nearly impossible to not be able to come up with a new idea or two...or several, that would fit into one's individual lifestyle. Prayer is a discipline that needs routine and regularity. Having visited a Benedictine Monastery myself nearly a dozen times, it is very easy to follow the prayer schedule, because that is really all there is to do...the difficult part is incorporating some form of that into the typical, hectic everyday lives we lead. This book has those practical, useful avenues to follow. Find your own path to prayer and use it to make your life even richer.
