9781440176555: Desert Living: Contemplative Living as the Context for Contemplative Praying

Many seek a life of deeper contemplation and union with God, but few see the connection between this desire and the need to live apart from the world.

There is an essential connection between contemplative living and contemplative praying. Contemplative living consists of being apart from the world. One must have a heart that is reserved for the Lord alone and remain separate from the delights, sights and sounds of society. By doing this, one can seek God with an undivided heart.

Fr. Steven Scherrer, an ordained Catholic priest lives as though he's still in the deserts where he once conducted missionary work. Without a telephone, television, radio or newspapers, he reflects on his life while praying and fasting. Along with his personal insights and experiences, discover:

  • Whether religion in the United States is dying
  • The history of asceticism and the monastic life
  • How to commune with God in a desert place
  • The importance of fasting
  • And much more!
Journey with a Roman Catholic priest through decades of desert living and discover how to truly seek God in Desert Living.
