A Little More Information

This volume contains all of De La Salle’s meditations. Written at various times in his life, these concise meditations were intended to serve as points for the Brothers to consider in their daily interior prayer. Though reflecting the ideals and practices of the French School of spirituality, they offer interesting insights into the beliefs and values of the Founder and serve as an inspiring guidepost to anyone in the ministry of education. The accompanying commentaries provide an excellent background on the historical period and the meditations.

The book brings together John Baptist de La Salle’s Meditations for Sundays and Feast days and the 16 Meditations for the Time of Retreat. Written for his Brothers to prepare them for their daily periods of private reflection and prayer, these meditations are especially suited for all persons engaged in the Christian education of the young. They concern themselves with the everyday realities in the life of a teacher.
