The Ways of Mental Prayer ranks as one of the Church s greatest classics on prayer, and was highly recommended as such by Fr. Garrigou-LaGrange, the 20th Century's greatest authority on mystical theology. Here Dom Lehodey, Abbot of Bricquebec, concentrates on the beginning stages of prayer, up through what is called the prayer of quiet, but he also describes the higher forms of prayer as well, including the very summit, or the prayer of union. In the process, he explains the advantages, the joys and—yes— the trials of mental prayer, plus he gives practical instructions on the methods of practicing this type of prayer. He also shows what to avoid and how to overcome the difficulties involved. By far the salient strength of this book is its description of how one goes from ordinary prayer to mystical prayer, which constitutes the giant step in the spiritual life. A wise and learned guide to spiritual matters, The Ways of Mental Prayer is a work destined to lead many to divine intimacy—a foretaste of Heaven on earth.
Do you find yourself struggling with a particular sin or dysfunction over and over again? Do you feel hopeless in finding freedom despite your best efforts? Do you still feel guilty, ashamed, and doomed to repeat a besetting sin, even after receiving the sacrament of Reconciliation? Then you may find a way to spiritual freedom through deliverance prayer. In Resisting the Devil, author Neal Lozano shows that sometimes evil spirits tell us lies that lock us into sins and personal problems. He explains the practice of deliverance, a way of dealing with such demonic influences that is supported by the teaching and tradition of the Catholic Church. Lozano's "Unbound" Model, based on three decades of experience in deliverance ministry, builds a bridge between the sacrament of Reconciliation and exorcism. People only very rarely need exorcism an official ministry of the Church yet can still have difficulty receiving the freedom offered by the sacrament. Deliverance closes this gap. It offers troubled believers a way to get free from the influence of evil spirits. Readers of Resisting the Devil: A Catholic Perspective on Deliverance will [[Learn how to recognize the activity of evil spirits [[See how deliverance from spiritual bondage can be gentle, safe, and effective [[Understand how deliverance differs from exorcism and how deliverance and Reconciliation can work together [[Read the testimonies of women and men who have been freed through deliverance ministry. I am convinced that this book, and the model of deliverance prayer that it describes, are of tremendous importance for the new evangelization. Neal Lozano is one of the pioneers of an approach to deliverance prayer that is simple yet effective, pastorally sound, and fully integrated into the sacramental life of the Church. He shows how this form of prayer, rooted in the New Testament, is a powerful way to experience, and help others experience, the full freedom that Jesus came to give us. Dr. Mary Healy, author of The Gospel of Mark, Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture As founders of Heart of the Father Ministries, Neal Lozano and his wife, Janet, travel both nationally and internationally bringing the message of the "Unbound" Model of deliverance in training seminars and conferences. Neal is the author of the best-selling Unbound: A Practical Guide to Deliverance. The Lozanos have four adult sons and seven grandchildren. They live in eastern Pennsylvania.
