I am a Catholic who is drawn to the prayer of the heart, known as the Jesus Prayer. I especially love to retreat with the Trappists whenever possible. I have a Ph.D. in Neuromusicology and am a lecturer at Stony Brook University. While I don't perform as often as I used to because of the amount of teaching I do, I am still involved as a professional musician mostly in musical theatre as an accompanist and conductor.
Those who have truly decided to serve the Lord God should practice the remembrance of God and uninterrupted prayer to Jesus Christ, mentally saying: Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
