Difficulties in Mental Prayer


Difficulties in Mental Prayer

by Dom Eugene Boylan, O.C.S.O.


Anyone who has been a Christian for a long period of time will tell you that prayer is often something difficult to do consistently; we often either fall into a habit of routine, or find it difficult to continue our routine of prayer. What is, however, more difficult, is to not pray at all. Dom Eugune O.C.S.O. explains the meaning of prayer, its necessity for all of the faithful, and the method by which one may become proficient in it throughout the course of this well-written spiritual classic. This book touches on many of the most common questions about prayer: how should we deal with distractions in prayer? How can we avoid being discouraged in prayer? At the same time, it goes beyond these difficulties in order to show how our personal lives of prayer are inseparable from our membership in the true Church founded by Christ our Lord.

When we speak to God, we must mean what we say; we must practice what we have promised; we must show forth in work what we say in word.

Dom Eugene Boylan, O.C.S.O.
