This book unearths the teachings of St. Dominic on prayer in a most accessible way. Dominic believed that the soul is moved by the body and then the body is able to respond back–the two work together in prayer. Each of the ten forms of prayer, here, is meant to be practiced for one week before moving onto the next. Each is beautifully and simply illustrated.

This is a beautiful book that helped me understand prayer in surprising new ways. Let the way of St. Dominic and the spiritual traditions of the Dominicans offer you a different path to the Lord.
