Two Books by Thomas H. Green, S.J..

Thanks to a recommended reading list from A Guide to Christian Meditation, by John Bartunek, LC, I've learned of the remarkable writing of the late Thomas H. Green, S.J..

I've just finished reading 2 of Fr. Green's books, Opening To God, and When the Well Runs Dry.

Opening To God might best be described as an introduction to prayer while When the Well Runs Dry goes beyond the beginnings for more serious pray-ers who might be experiencing what St John of the Cross called the "Dark Night of the Soul".

The two books draw from Catholic sources, - St. John of the Cross, St. Teresa of Avila and the author of The Cloud of Unknowing.

Both books are rather quick reads - particularly Opening To God and I'm quite certain I'll be re-reading the two again and again.
