Peace of Heart: Reflections on Choices in Daily Life  Jul 30, 2008
Peace of Heart: Reflections on Choices in Daily Life is broken into 4 weeks each containing 7 days of reflections. Each week has its own focus: (1) Staying Rooted in God's Presence; (2) An Eternal Perspective; (3) The Peace of Charity; (4) Being at Peace with Oneself.

Father Foley draws from a wide knowledge of literature when he writes. Some representative authors are Shakespeare, St. Thomas Aquinas, Hans Kung, John Milton, William Wordsworth, Ken Blanchard (of the One Minute Manager), C.S. Lewis, Kathleen Norris and Cardinal Newman as well as many others. From his Carmelite tradition Father Foley quotes from, St. Teresa of Avila, St. John of the Cross and St. Therese of Lisieux.

The first reflection references the title of the book and lays the foundation for all that follows. "The great principle of the interior life lies in peace of heart," writes De Caussade. "It must be preserved with such care that the moment it is in danger, everything else should be abandoned for its re-establishment...The reason for this is that peace and tranquility of spirit alone give the soul great strength to achieve all that God wills."

If our hearts are at peace we have a place where we can meet God in prayer. Each day the book provides the topic that can help lead us into this prayerful encounter. Although I think all of the reflections are notable, I was touched by week 4, day 6. "The next time that you are anxious, don't pray that the anxiety goes away but rather for the strength to bear it and to continue loving your neighbor in spite of it. If you do so, you will feel a peace beyond understanding because within the swirl of your anxiety you will become aware of a still point -- the presence of God"

I highly recommend this book. Buy one for yourself and extras to give your friends.
 
Peace of Heart, Mind, and Soul  May 17, 2008
Subtitled Reflections on Choices in Daily Life, this new entry in the "7 x 4" series consists of 28 short meditations (one a day for 4 weeks). Marc Foley, a Carmelite priest, presents the material under four themes: staying rooted in God's presence, an eternal perspective, the peace of charity, and being at peace with oneself. Each individually titled entry covers one to two pages. Most contain a story or quotation that illustrates the theme and end with a question to ponder or a suggestion for a small action that might increase the odds of finding peace of heart, mind, and soul in the near term. One of my favorites, Where Will You Live Today? addresses the "endless stream of images and emotionally laden ideas that we cannot stop." Foley retells a Chinese proverb reminding us that while we cannot control birds (negative and anxious thoughts) who wish to fly over our heads, we can prevent them from "building nests in our hair." We choose our thoughts, he writes, and rather than brood, "we can gently focus our mind on God's Eternal Presence dwelling within us, realizing that we can never be alone, never separated from the One who loves us."

Like the earlier entries in the 7 x 4 series, this pocket-sized gem would make a wonderful gift for self or others.
