Praying with John Baptist de La Salle
By Carl Koch
De La Salle is recognized as the patron of teachers because he taught, worked out the best ways to instruct poor children, and trusted that God would guide and bless him each step of the way. The meditations in this book are designed to help readers pray with de La Salle on such themes as faith, zeal, trusting in Providence, the person of the teacher, perseverance, and discerning God's will. Stories about Saint John Baptist de La Salle, his writings, and passages from the Scriptures form the basis of each meditation.
Many of the other books in the Companions for the Journey series are available from Word Among Us Press at http://bookstore.wau.org.
