'We will never achieve true happiness if we continue to search for it outside the very source of love, which we know is God himself.' In Calm the Soul: A Book of Simple Wisdom and Prayer, The Poor Clares, an enclosed order of nuns based in Nuns' Island, Galway, draw on the fruit of their monastic lives and suggest simple practices to help nourish our souls and find a sense of calm in today's world. With practical advice in preparing for prayer, The Poor Clares look at ways we can slowly build up the amount of time spent in prayer and meditation in our daily lives, to achieve a sense of peace and well-being. They combine reflections on familiar prayers, such as the Our Father and Hail Mary, with meditations on Scripture, and prayers for specific needs such as depression, self-esteem and sickness. An inspiring book of simple spirituality which offers faith and hope to anyone seeking solace in today's world.
