PRAYING TO GOD AS A FRIEND Saint Alphonsus Liguori
The genius of St Alphonsus lies in his realization that all people everywhere are seeking intimacy with God. In his writings, St Alphonsus never tires of presenting the God who loves people beyond anything that we can imagine. His aim is ” to back us into a corner” with such proof of God’s love that we will learn to respond spontaneously to the God who calls us friend.
St Alphonsus believes that people learn to pray by praying. Instead of long explanations, you will find brief instrucitons and examples of intimate prayer with God.
These pages will help you open your heart to the Lord and pour out you deepest cares and concerns, joys and sorrow – just as you would with your best friend.
