Learn of Me - Rev. John Kearney
A Further Sequel to “My Yoke is Sweet”.
Materials for Meditation on the Spiritual Life and What it Requires of Us
by Rev. John Kearney, C.S.Sp. Imprimatur, 1939.
(From the Preface):
“This volume completes the outline of the Spiritual Life set forth in My Yoke is Sweet and You Shall Find Rest. It treats in detail of the great principle that governed the life of Our Lord, of how we can make that principle govern our lives, and of what doing this involves – self-denial, mortification, prayer.”
There are many who are “weak in their gratitude to God, ungenerous in His service, withholding from Him and His Church that full devotion we should expect. Many are at a low level of spiritual mediocrity. It is sad to see one who once prayed fervently begin to withdraw from intimate relations with God and gradually settling down to give God rather the minimum than the maximum. What means can be suggested to cure this mediocrity, to prevent a soul from falling from spiritual generosity? Father Kearney gives the answers in this easy-to-read book! For those, however, who think that God wishes us to be miserable and unhappy here, that we may be perfectly happy hereafter are in for a surprise. Father Kearney shows how the reverse is true: the saints were happy, intensely happy even amid their trials. Oh! Mighty and Merciful Father, with Thy grace we desire to be like the saints! 312 pages.
