The Practice of the Presence of God

by Brother Lawrence

I came home from the hospital after 22 hours of surgery, and 5 weeks in the hospital. I needed the presence of God in my life. The monk, Brother Lawrence, mystified his fellow brothers by getting to know God in a personal way. I loved the writings of Brother Lawrence, but the commentary on his life, not so much. Take this one with a grain of salt, but it is very deep.
