Five Pillars of the Spiritual Life – Who has time to pray when there are so many pressing issues of the day to contend with? “Anyone,” says Jesuit Father Robert Spitzer in his new book Five Pillars of the Spiritual Life: A Practical Guide to Prayer for Active People (Ignatius). Father Spitzer, president of Gonzaga University in Spokane, Wash., outlines five essential ways for even the busiest person to have a better prayer life: the Eucharist, spontaneous prayer, the Beatitudes, partership with the Holy Spirit and the contemplative life. Join Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson online July 24 at 5 p.m. (ET) for a discussion of Five Pillars of the Spiritual Life.
