Contemplative practices for laypeople?
#29
Fraxinus,

May I suggest "The Journey from the Head to the Heart" by Fr. Stephen Valentas, OFM?

There was a copy in the adoration chapel I used to frequent before my last move, and when I struggled to silence my thoughts and be with Our Lord, I would pick it up and read 5 or 10 pages at a time before returning to prayer.  It really helped.

It is written for ordinary folks and the humility, obedience, gentleness and uncompromising orthodoxy of the writing should commend itself to a more traditional Catholic.
