About this item

Without regular reminders of God and a sure routine of prayer and meditation, the inner life shrivels, devotion grows listless, and the Sacraments can become mere habits.

Daily meditation is a proven remedy for such dangerous spiritual lethargy, and in our challenging time it is a more important practice than ever before.

Originally published as Meditations for Layfolk, this edition of Classic Catholic Meditations recovers the readable and insightful essays of Fr. Bede Jarrett, OP (d. 1934), who understood the need for Catholic laypeople to shape and sanctify their busy lives with brief times of devotion and focused mental prayer.

In these pages, Fr. Jarrett offers more than 120 meditations with precisely that goal in mind: None are longer than 1,000 words, and each one attends to some unique truth of Divine Revelation that assists the reader in personal prayer.

Don’t know how to meditate? Fr. Jarrett's simple and kindly guidance is accessible for those in all walks of life, and makes this time-honored practice understandable for those unfamiliar with traditional Catholic forms of prayer.

Classic Catholic Meditations will calm your soul, inform and enrich your faith, and help you enter more deeply into prayer. 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.
