“Every summer seminarians from across the country come together at the Institute for Priestly Formation, sent by their bishops, to deepen their prayer life and grow in communion with Christ. In Fr. John Horn’s new workbook Heart Speaks to Heart a similar experience within a review of life, coupled with the blessing of healing prayer, can touch the heart of every pastor and every parishioner concerned about growing in intimacy with Christ and tasting God the Father’s love.”
The Most Reverend Robert Carlson

“This beautiful book developed a method to lead the reader deeper, in a living way, into relationship with Jesus Christ. Its strength lies both in its simplicity and in its prayerful discernment of the “how” which directs the reader towards the “Who” for whom we all long. This practical guide identifies a clear path into the mystery of communion with God.”

“The college students I encounter every day have a profound need to experience the truth and power of Jesus’ healing love for them. To say ‘Jesus is Lord of history’ is one thing. To have a lived experience of the truth that Jesus is Lord of every moment of my personal history is quite another. Heart Speaks to Heart offers the reader wisdom, encouragement, and concrete tools to taste and see the healing love of Jesus available and victorious in each moment of life.”
Father Scott Traynor, JCL

"If we are to win hearts for Christ, we cannot meet their depths with our shallows. This book provides a way to bring the deep cry of human hearts into conversation and contact with the infinite depth of Christ's healing love...But how can we draw people into that conversation and into that relationship? Here's your how-to guide! Thanks be to God!"

"Today as in the times of Jesus, the faithful ask of priests, "teach us to pray." This book is an answer to people's desire to pray. Those who prayerfully use it, clergy and laity, will grow in their love for Scripture and grow in a deeper intimacy with the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. They will learn how to speak heart-to-heart with the living God."
