New Book: 'How to Pray the Dominican Way'

A recently produced book from Paraclete Press will interest Dominicans and those interested in the Dominican vocation. Entitled 'How to Pray the Dominican Way' (ISBN: 978-1-61261-165-5) it is based on the nine ways of prayer of Saint Dominic. Those familiar with the 'nine ways' of prayer of Saint Dominic will know that the founder of the Order used the entire person - body and soul - in prayer.

This book then explores and helps readers understand prayer in some surprising new ways - and is a practical and profound introduction to Christian prayer. We know that Saint Dominic always spoke to God and about God and we are fortunate to have a record of the different ways that he prayed. The author of this book, Angelo Stagnaro, uncovers the richness of this spiritual tradition and shows how we can learn from Saint Dominic whose one desire and life mission was to speak of the love and mercy of God.

This is an easy read and is highly recommended. It is available from Amazon and Veritas in Ireland
