Prayers for the Road Home: Signposts for Reclaiming Your Faith
Intending to collect prayers for use by Catholics returning to the church in the Landings program, Jac Campbell has instead produced an extraordinarily beautiful prayer book that all Catholics will immediately love. The overall theme is one of welcome and rediscovering home, whether or not one has ever been away from it. At home, one finds the strength to day by day go out and re-enter the world, knowing there's a source of nourishment and shelter always waiting. This book is a bit of home in itself, a source of nourishment and shelter always waiting to be picked up and prayed. Including prayers, poems, and reflections, this warm and inviting book covers both childhood favorites, as well as the longer traditional prayers such as the Mysteries of the Rosary, Stations of the Cross, Seven Last Words, and others. It taps scripture, hymns, and literature for especially moving prayers, while using the Sacramentary for its prefaces. The overall organization is by theme: prayers for coming to God, prayers for experiencing God as alive, and prayers for experiencing God through others in our relationships. A brief appendix for using the book in a Landings program is included. While especially recommended for Landings participants and dioceses adopting the program, this fresh, surprising, and insightful prayer book is recommended for all Catholics. It's a wonderful resource for pastoral ministers, religious ed ministers, small faith sharing groups, seasonal prayer groups, RCIA leaders and participants, Confirmation candidates, and spiritual seekers. Prayers for the Road Home also makes a wonderful all-occasion gift. +

Страница 54 - O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
