About this item

Without regular reminders of God and a sure routine of prayer and meditation, your inner life shrivels up, your prayers grow listless, the sacraments become habits, and even the Mass seems routine.

Daily meditation is a proven remedy for such dangerous spiritual lethargy, and in our day it’s more important than ever before.

That’s why the wise Dominican priest Bede Jarrett penned for busy Catholics like you the more than 120 meditations collected here — none longer than 1,000 words — to ensure that each of your days contains at least one brief, thoughtful encounter with God.

Each meditation calls to your attention some truth of revelation to help you keep in mind that God wants you to be a saint and to help you attain that lofty goal, no matter how secular your circumstances may be or how dry your spirits.

You don’t know how to meditate? No problem. Meditation is simply prayer of the mind and heart, a kind of prayer that Fr. Jarrett teaches you here in a page or two.

Once you learn it, you’ll find yourself reaping the rich spiritual harvest that regular meditation brings. In fact, within days of taking up these pages, you’ll be surprised to find yourself habitually addressing yourself to God — and not merely during crises, but also in the ordinary course of your day, regularly calling on Him for strength and quietly speaking to Him out of the fullness of your heart.

Classic Catholic Meditations will calm your soul, enrich your faith, and help you pray. Why not begin today?

Can't meditate well? Learn with this!
This book, most particularly the introduction, has such a clear description of how to begin meditations that I have finally begun to have effective and meaningful time with our Lord. Full of mediations on dozens of topics, there is enough source material for a decade of daily meditation. This book is not meant to read straight through. You can, but you will not get what the book is really aiming at. It does present orthodox Catholic teachings so modernists will probably not enjoy this very much. While written in an easy and relaxed style, each sentence and paragraph is full deeper meaning and material to fuel your mediation. This is a very good and effective guide for those who seek to improve their spirituality through meditation.
