Summary

“The best possible experience of life comes from following Christ. I should know, because I have the best life of anyone I know! The only way to disprove me is to follow Christ and see whether or not I’m right.”

Father Gary Caster knows that there can be a confusing number of devotional practices in Catholicism; attending Mass, praying the Rosary, tithing, fasting, performing the Sacraments - all are important, but checking obligations off a list is not the way to a nourished soul.

In Prayer Everywhere: The Spiritual Life Made Simple, Father Gary strips Catholicism down to Jesus’ core command: that we let him love us.

Regardless of his own fragility, weakness, and sin, Father Gary expects to enter the gates of heaven with a band playing, “When the Saints Go Marching In”. Why? Because he relies on and accepts God’s promises, his mercy, and love. He wants for himself what God wants for him; in fact, he wills what God has promised him. This lies at the heart of how he lives his life with Christ and serves him as a priest. He hopes that at the end of this book, it will lie at the heart of your relationship with Christ, too - and that for the rest of your life, you will just let him love you.

Simple, of course, is not the same as easy. Jesus made it abundantly clear that we do not follow him as individuals alone; we follow him as companions. Every human activity and endeavor, no matter how grand or seemingly insignificant, can flow from and express our relationship with Christ. In this practical, conversational, and accessible guide, you’ll learn to open the whole of your life to Christ and intentionally make him a vital part of everything you do.

Within the recesses of every human heart is a longing that only God can satisfy. You are the most important work that Jesus is up to, so why not let him be at work in you?

Critic reviews

"A compelling, honest, and heartfelt journey into the mysterious depths of our prayer life. If you are looking to deepen your time with God and grow closer in your friendship with Our Lord Jesus, this book is for you. Fr. Gary tells us it is really all very simple. But we have to make prayer a priority, not what he points out might be an item on our list of things to fit into a busy day. This is all about real life stories and examples of what it means to be in a growing and lasting relationship with the Creator of the Universe. Maybe a word of caution! Be careful, because if you take what Fr. Gary has to say seriously, this might change your life forever." (Chuck Neff, host of Relevant Radio's The Inner Life)

Fantastic Narration

Father Gary shares some beautiful stories and simply reminds us how simple prayer is anytime and anywhere. As someone who already prays everywhere, it is joyous to here a priest support informal prayer while encouraging formal prayer as well. As a mother of 5, I listen to an audio rosary while doing dishes and pray with my kids in the car. It is hard to have peace and quiet with so many around. Father Gary had a wonderful voice. I'm so glad he read his book himself. Thank you Father.

This book is a must-read!

Fr. Caster's story is both entertaining (his sense of humor shines through in his writing!) and inspiring. His philosophy on prayer and Jesus's love completely altered and began my new, blossoming prayer life. Thank you For. Caster. Anyone on the fence, definately read it and see how much Jesus wants to love you.
