Introduction to the Devout Life
A friend shared an amazing resource with me that I have to share with you. Calvin College hosts the Christian Classics Ethereal Library where one can read the writing of many Christian scholars (for free!). I had mentioned my desire to improve my prayer life during Lent, and my friend suggested I use the 10 meditations from St Francis de Sales Introduction to the Devout Life found here. I did the first meditation tonight and I can honestly say my prayer went from the usual boring laundry list that I can't even focus on to actual adoration from my soul. Amazing. I hope you'll also find it fruitful.
