Distraction in Prayer (and the episode) – Episode 122
We had a few hiccups on this show. New equipment. New producer. Trying Facebook Live. Perfect storm. We should have it down moving forward – appreciate your patience.
This whole episode is based off a book Adam read every year called, “Ways of Mental Prayer” by Rev. Abbot Dom Vitalis Lehodey.
The Ways of Mental Prayer ranks as one of the Church s greatest classics on prayer, and was highly recommended as such by Fr. Garrigou-LaGrange, the 20th Century s greatest authority on mystical theology.
Here Dom Lehodey concentrates on the beginning stages of prayer, up through what is called the prayer of quiet, but he also describes the higher forms of prayer as well, including the very summit, or the prayer of union. In the process, he explains the advantages, the joys and—yes— the trials of mental prayer, plus he gives practical instructions on the methods of practicing this type of prayer.
