  1. Seeking Wisdom: Spiritual Direction and the Moral Life
    Price From: $139.95

    Inspired by St. Alphonsus de Liguori (1696–1787), patron saint of confessors and moral theologians, this series addresses the relationship between spiritual direction and the moral life.

Mental prayer is a new and valuable tool that you can use to become your truest self through your faith. And, in the spirit of Alphonsus, it is simple, practical, and easy to implement.
