So what are you reading/why are you reading it/would you recommend it/why or why not?
I am in the middle of another book by Fr. Timothy Gallagher.
I began with **Discernment of Spirits: An Ignatian Guide for Everyday Living **and after reading two other am now on Spiritual Consolation: An Ignatian Guide for the Greater Discernment of Spirits.
Fr. Gallagher has inspired my spiritual life more than any other book of late. Discerning spirits and understanding spiritual consolations and desolations has opened a completely new way of prayer for me. I have read many books on prayer (Dubay, Saints, Eastern Rite) and though they have been beautiful and thought filled ~ none have given me a “method” that has been so applicable as Fr. Gallagher.
Also discerning spirits in this world today I know (for me) is essential in growing closer to Jesus Christ. I highly recommend Fr. Gallagher’s books.
