Peter of Alcantara is little known, as is the saint himself. Don’t let that fool you. He directed the great mystic St. Teresa of Avila on difficult questions she had about prayer, for which she has written about in her Interior Castle. St. Teresa turned to this great treatise on meditation by St.

Peter for guidance.St. Peter of Alcantara’s work is a sure antidote to much of the false teaching of our day. His insights on prayer are profound and far reaching. You will find here the gems that God has in store for all who truly desire to grow in relationship with Him in prayer. Finding God Through Meditation gives you a window into perspectives on prayer that should challenge and enrich you for years to come.About the Series: Dan Burke’s Navigating series brings the wisdom of the saints into your hands.

Dan Burke’s new work on meditation, especially in the thoughts of St. Peter of Alcantara and also reflected in his close collaboration with St. Teresa of Avila, offers significant help in this search. We are made aware that these Saints rejected the notion that meditation is the work of the human mind. Rather, it lies in seeking a quiet and peaceful time with the Living God. Prayer in this work is defined as “A bath, an open place, a bed of pleasure wherein the soul rests and finds refreshment.”Of special interest is Dan Burke’s updated translation of St.

Peter of Alcantara’s treatise on prayer and meditation. This book allows the reader to share in the experience of the Saints who are masters of prayer. This is certainly a growing need to the growing secularism and even implicit atheism which is present in our culture.

— Most Rev. John J. Myers, Archbishop of NewarkDan Burke’s presentation of writings of the Franciscan Saint Peter of Alcantara is a welcome addition to the body of Franciscan spirituality. Although initially written some 400 years ago, Saint Peter’s approach to a method for meditation, and his practical advice on how to enter into meditation, are of timeless significance and of great value to anyone seeking to foster a deeper Franciscan spirituality.

Dan Burke’s organization of St. Peter’s work prepares the reader to more fully embrace his process for meditation. The reader will feel compelled to return to this book time and time again to grasp the depth of Saint Peter’s wisdom and to endeavor to incorporate his teachings into one’s daily life. — Fr. Sean O. Sheridan, TOR, President, Franciscan University of Steubenville
