Mother Angelica's Private and Pithy Lessons from the Scriptures Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Word is made fresh by the irrepressible Mother Angelica as she personally escorts you through the Scriptures, unearthing lessons for daily living--the perfect companion to the New York Times bestselling Mother Angelica's Little Book of Life Lessons and Everyday Spirituality.

The founder of the world's largest religious media empire shares her beloved wit and down-to-earth spirituality in MOTHER ANGELICA'S PRIVATE AND PITHY LESSONS FROM THE SCRIPTURES. Editor Raymond Arroyo draws on hundreds of never-before-released private lessons to present the renowned nun's definitive take on the Good Book. Angelica provides readers with guided meditations, probing personal questions, and reveals an often-overlooked practical spirituality. She doesn't just explain the stories, she relates them to our daily lives, helping even those who've never opened the Bible experience its power and life-altering lessons. The apostles Paul ("the little shrimp"), Peter ("that great bungler") and all the characters of the Scriptures are suddenly human again, complete with their foibles and triumphs. Here is the Greatest Story, newly told as only Mother Angelica can. The Bible and you will never be the same.

A portion of the royalties from this book goes to support the work of Our Lady of the Angels Monastery

Synopsis:

Mother Angelica, born Rita Rizzo in 1923 and founder of the Eternal Word Television Network as well as the Poor Clare Convent of Our Lady of the Angels in Alabama, could be the nun sent down by the Central Casting Office: strict, folksy, and wary of high talk and big ideas. Through her long-popular TV broadcasts (still to be seen in repeat on her program) and her many publications, Mother Angelica has exerted a powerful influence in the United States and across the world as a voice of conventional and conservative Catholicism. After Mother Angelica suffered a series of strokes in the early 2000s, Arroyo began to assemble and edit some of her unpublished writings. Her interest in Scripture is unusual for a Poor Clare (not one of the "learned" orders), but she would doubtless be proud to concede that her readings and her spirituality alike are unsophisticated. This companion volume to Arroyo's "Mother Angelica's Little Book of Life Lessons" is likely to appeal to the same broad audience.
