This book unearths the teachings of St. Dominic on prayer in a most accessible way. Dominic believed that the soul is moved by the body and then the body is able to respond back–the two work together in prayer. Each of the ten forms of prayer, here, is meant to be practiced for one week before moving onto the next. Each is beautifully and simply illustrated.
A recently produced book from Paraclete Press will interest Dominicans and those interested in the Dominican vocation. Entitled 'How to Pray the Dominican Way' (ISBN: 978-1-61261-165-5) it is based on the nine ways of prayer of Saint Dominic. Those familiar with the 'nine ways' of prayer of Saint Dominic will know that the founder of the Order used the entire person - body and soul - in prayer.
This book then explores and helps readers understand prayer in some surprising new ways - and is a practical and profound introduction to Christian prayer. We know that Saint Dominic always spoke to God and about God and we are fortunate to have a record of the different ways that he prayed. The author of this book, Angelo Stagnaro, uncovers the richness of this spiritual tradition and shows how we can learn from Saint Dominic whose one desire and life mission was to speak of the love and mercy of God.
