This post is another message to me to carry on with my quest to feel Jesus when in prayer. Thank you BILTRIX!
I am reading this book, The Better Part: A Christ-Centered Resource for Personal Prayer by Fr. John Bartunek.

I found it on this blog http://rcspiritualdirection.com/blog/ What a fantastic buy! It has opened my heart and mind to being close to the Lord through daily meditation. I’ve been thirsting for this information for so long, this book has done it for me. I bought the Kindle edition, but I’d like to recommend that if you are interested in it buy the hard copy. It’s a book to have and to hold. I can’t wait for my copy to arrive.
The Better Part equips Christians with the resources they need to, “set of into the deep” to enter into a personal, intimate conversation with Christ. Father Bartunek Begins his book with a short prayer primer, an exposition of the basics of Christian prayer that is worth the price of the book by itself. The rest of the book contains guided meditations on the Gospels with a liberal sprinkling of quotes from the Doctors and Fathers of the Church. The book contains the entire text off all four Gospels taken from the Jerusalem Bible (an excellent and very approachable translation). Each unit is meant as a stepping off point. While reading and reflecting on each unit would be of great benefit to anyone, using them as a starting point for your own conversation with Christ is the ultimate goal.


Three ways to know that God is talking to us in prayer:

  1. I watched this on Biltrix but seeing it again here reminds me that I still haven’t ordered Fr. Bartunek’s book. Thanks for the endorsement and the reminder.
