"My most usual method is this simple attention, an affectionate regard for God to whom I find myself often attached with greater sweetness and delight than that of an infant at the mother's breast. To choose an expression, I would call this state the bosom of God, for the inexpressible sweetness which I taste and experience there." This is how "Brother Laurence" describes his constant practice of speaking with and reflecting upon God amidst the mundane tasks of life. Nicholas Herman (c.1605-1691)was born in Lorraine, France and served as a cook and shoe repairer at a Carmelite monastery. He was only a lay member of the order, and walked with a limp from injuries incurred as a soldier, yet his private thoughts provide a wellspring of devotional insight and refreshment. Unabridged. Read by Nick Cordileone.

The Practice of the Presense of God by Brother Lawrence, is good to listen to when life becomes stressful. I feel at peace when I listen to Brother Lawrence's words, and he helps me to put in perspective, every day life, and how the simple things can become pleasurable and meaningful when you do them for God.
