fill these hearts

Christopher West’s new book, Fill These Hearts, is out today¬ For several weeks now, West has been posting “sneak peaks” on Facebook. Here the latest excerpt:

“According to the Christian faith, the ecstasy we yearn for at the deepest level of our being is precisely what God wants to give us— eternally… This is what sexual morality, properly understood, is all about: learning how to aim our desire for heaven toward heaven.”

I pre-ordered mine on Amazon. I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into it. Hurry up MrPostman!

Below is a short trailer for the book. More information can be found on West’s website.

St  Teresa tells us that she experienced continual periods of dryness in her prayer life. To combat this, she never began to pray without a book.

Below is a bookmark with some suggestions of books, mostly from saints, that may be useful for spiritual readings and aid prayer.

Why not print some copies and give them to friends and family members. You could also leave some at the back of the Church (ask your parish priest first) or in the adoration chapel.

Going a step further, you could give the gift of one of these books to someone, to encourage them on their Journey of Faith.
