How do I find God?

This probing question is the single most important for Christians today.

When our souls are thirsty for the spiritual, how do we fid the time to contemplate, and more importantly, what do we do during that time? What happens when God asks us to let go of what is dear to us? Does the ancient mystical tradition of the Church mean anything today?

Celebrated author and Daughter of St. Paul Kathryn James Hermes, F.S.P., seeks to address these questions in this vital course.

You will find spiritual nourishment through this unique series. This program weaves together various strands of Christian living into a tapestry of spiritual development and Christian maturity.

It is only the Spirit who paints in our hearts the face of Christ and so the program includes guided prayer exercises where you can place yourself under the guidance of the Spirit.

We highly recommend this series.

A different approach. Review by Anonymous
Sr. Hermes uses a different approach in "Contemplative Prayer". She has you analyze your feelings to determine what might be holding you back from loving God as you should.

You can't get better that that! Review by Manfredi
Sr. Hermes' Contemplative Prayer course is so thorough and provides so many examples that in my opinion it's the definitive course on the subject. You can't get better that that! (Posted on 9/4/15)
* Review by Deacon Gary Harmeyer, Virginia Beach, VA, USA
It was easy to relate to the presenter. She shared her struggles, didn't have all the answers, but has remained faithful throughout her various struggles. (Posted on 4/14/15)
