“It may be, my child, that you do not know how to practice mental prayer, for unfortunately it is a thing much neglected nowadays. I will therefore give you a short and easy method for using it...”

We continue our reading series of St. Frances de Sales’ spiritual masterpiece by jumping ahead a few chapters to Part 2, in which the Doctor of the Church breaks down each part of his method for meditation. The fuller explanation on mental prayer given within these chapters will help us when we proceed with the ten distinct meditations provided in Part 1, which will be the subject of the next installment.

This work will be released in its entirety in episodic format over the course of the next several months. Be sure to subscribe so as not to miss an installment!
