Awake My Soul: Contemporary Catholics on Traditional Devotions

Awake My Soul: Contemporary Catholics on Traditional Devotions Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

awake my soul introduces the practice of devotions to a new generation of the faithful. The essays in this enlightening collection celebrate the  traditional Catholic devotions—those sensual, physical, time-honored forms of piety that have sustained generations of believers. Contemporary men and women are finding in the devotions what earlier generations found—comfort in times of trial, models of discipleship, encouragement to care for others, and ways to draw closer to Jesus in prayer and worship.

The twenty contributors to Awake My Soul—which include Ron Hansen, Joan Chittester, Lawrence Cunningham, and Paul Mariani—share their delight in this rediscovery of their Catholic heritage. Awake My Soul shows how the great tradition of Catholic prayer can help all of us to regain a sense of the profound mystery at the center of our Catholic faith and to discover new depths of meaning in our prayer lives.
