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, a great authority on mystical theology.

Here Dom Lehodey 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 advantaages, the joys and — yes — the trials of mental prayer, plus he gives practical instructions on the methods of practicing this type of prayer.
