For the second year, NCR is bringing our readers a four-part series of conversations on spirituality during the Lenten season.
In the second conversation, Soul Seeing for Lent host Michael Leach speaks with Jesuit Fr. Jim Martin, editor-at-large at America magazine, about the power of prayer and having honest conversations with God.
Honesty with God means sharing everything with God, not simply gratitude and praise and not just things you think are appropriate for prayer, writes Martin in his Soul Seeing for Lent column.
Read a review of Martin's book, Learning to Pray: A Guide for Everyone.
Soul Seeing, which is edited by Leach, is a regular NCR column focused on spirituality and the "peace beyond all understanding." You can read all Soul Seeing columns here.
