Prayer in practice by Romano Guardini( Book )
116 editions published between 1943 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Monsignor Guardini's book is first and foremost an introduction to prayer, but an introduction produced by a master. He anticipates the problems that will arise at every stage in the spiritual life, and encourages the beginner by showing him what promise is held out in the first steps of prayer, how to persevere and to develop in prayer life. Into this book, Monsignor Guardini has put his most mature thought and the reflections arising from a lifetime's study of the implications of faith. Yet it is all expressed in a manner intelligible to the uninitiated but attractive also to the more advanced thinkers. The author brings out the role of Jesus Christ as the essential link in prayer, through whom alone we may know the Father, and he draws copiously on Scripture, throwing us back on what God Himself has said of our approach to Him. Prayer is seen, too, as a response to facts, meaning a grappling with the real world, which is a world created, sustained, and ordered by God. There are chapters on mysticism, on popular prayers, on the liturgy, all of which subjects are treated with new insight and a real understanding of the needs of all levels of spirituality

The end of the modern world; a search for orientation by Romano Guardini( Book )
41 editions published between 1954 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A professor of religion at the University of Munich, Guardini was a firsthand observer of the wrenching changes that devastated European society in World War II and laid the foundations for what has been called our "postmodern" Western civilization. From that momentous experience he draws conclusions that challenge our assumptions about the human condition at the end of the second millennium." "The first book, The End of the Modern World, (from which this combined volume takes its title), examines life in the era of "Mass Man," the world in which mass-production, mass-communication, and mass-marketing threaten to crush individual character and initiative under "the power of the anonymous."" "In the companion work, Power and Responsibility, Guardini extends his analysis to focus on our current ambivalence toward the nature, uses, and propriety of power." "It is the principle of individual responsibility that weaves these two books into a comprehensive and compelling moral statement. Guardini tirelessly argues that human beings are responsible moral agents, possessed of free will and answerable to God and their fellow man."--Jacket
