Description du Livre

In a clear, engaging style, Carmelite Prayer presents and illuminates the historical contemplative tradition for all readers. It provides immediate access to the latest scholarship in Carmelite spirituality with illustrative examples and informed guidance. Compiled by the Carmelite Forum to address the rapidly growing interest in the Carmelite classics and Carmelite prayer, this collection of essays emphasizes contemplation's vital role in spiritual living and loving action. According to the essays in Carmelite Prayer: *Contemplative prayer is not a matter of human achievement but is God's gracious gift to the heart that struggles to be free. *Carmelite classics were not composed merely for the erudite. *Carmelite solitude has always been for the sake of deep inner mindfulness of the presence of a loving God. *The method of meditating is not objectified thinking but pondering the word of God in one's heart. *Carmelite prayer is not for the sake of experiences but for the sake of loving union with God *Carmelite prayer is Christian prayer shaped by the Word of God, rooted in Christ, celebrated in the liturgy, and expressed in just living. Thoroughly contemporary and pragmatic, this collection of essays provides a clear picture of Carmelite teaching while encouraging a journey of discovery and faith. Recommended for readers interested in: --Prayer and contemplative studies --Spiritual Direction --Church History
