Library of How Saints Pray

I’ve been creating my own Masterclass-for-me, researching what the Saints teach us about prayer. I’ve discovered some AWESOME books…some are probably familiar if you’ve ever jumped into Catholic spiritual reading, but some are a little obscure, written by holy men and women, not yet declared saints…a couple of them are still walking around in our time!

This is my secret library of what the Saints taught about prayer. You’ll find some classics, but also some lesser-known gems.

Have you been inspired to pray the way some of your favorite saints prayed?

Have any of these books strengthened YOUR prayer life?
