Teach us how to pray by Louis Évely( Book )

20 editions published between 1966 and 1998 in 4 languages and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rising aove definitions, techniques and academic questions, the author goes to the core of the matter: prayer for self is not an attempt to change God but a determination to let him change us; and prayer for others is not an excuse for inertia ("I'll ask God to help you carry this cross") but a resolve to find ways of lifting the cross.

Love your neighbor by Louis Évely( Book )

21 editions published between 1956 and 1992 in 4 languages and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author writes with engaging candor and realism on the essential theme of Christianity: man's ability, because of the Incarnation, to know God in sensible form. Through pointed, meditative chapters on brotherhood, Baptism, the Holy Eucharist, the Word, authority, death and resurrection, Penance, and the Epiphany-structure of Christianity, he communicates an understanding of Christianity as the religion of the tangible and familiar presence of God. Far from being a system of rules and regulations, gestures and genuflecting, it is a sensible religion, a religion of incarnation in which God offers himself to be lived out in the life of every person, animating it and filling it to the brim with love
