No one knows who wrote The Way of a Pilgrim, but it’s a classic spiritual work about a Russian man in the 19th century who discovers the writings of St. Paul and is puzzled by Paul’s comment that we should “pray unceasingly.” How would that even be possible? he wonders. So he sets off on a journey with one prayer on his lips — “Lord, Jesus Christ, have mercy on me” — and his discoveries along the way provide lessons for any seeker and believer, even today. Bishop Robert Barron of Word on Fire tells us more of the story, how it can help us grow spiritually, and why this book never gets old.
