Cassian taught that real intimacy with God in prayer must include renouncing the thoughts belonging to our former way of life. In Thoughts Matter, Sr. Meg Funk instructs readers on how effectively to overcome these thoughts and to focus instead on thoughts in harmony with God’s will.
The result is an experience of joy, hope, and freedom from enslavement to our appetites. Readers will come away enlightened, strengthened, and inspired to delve more deeply into a life of intimacy with God.
Mary Margaret Funk is a Benedictine nun of Our Lady of Grace Monastery, Beech Grove, Indiana.
