Library of How Saints Pray

I’ve been creating my own Masterclass-for-me, researching what the Saints teach us about prayer. I’ve discovered some AWESOME books…some are probably familiar if you’ve ever jumped into Catholic spiritual reading, but some are a little obscure, written by holy men and women, not yet declared saints…a couple of them are still walking around in our time!

Imagine You Walked with Jesus: A Guide to Ignatian Contemplative Prayer {Book Review}

Imagine You Walked with Jesus: A Guide to Ignatian Contemplative Prayer
by Jerry Windley-Daoust
Our Sunday Visitor

This book is a treasure!

Windley-Daoust provides all the context of first-century Palestine, including what the buildings looked and felt like, what clothes the people wore, and what food they enjoyed, as well as insights into the Jewish culture of the time. He provides prayer to help us receive the specific Scripture and then ‘sets the scene’  with helpful detail about the context, given the culture and any special references alluded to within the Scripture. The author then extends a few questions to prompt reflection and consider how the story applies to our lives. He encourages us to reflect and prayer-journal or share with a prayer group.

Review: The Illustrated Bible for Children by Magnificat/Ignatius Press

I am so excited to review this NEW Illustrated Bible for Children by the Magnificat division of Ignatius Press. It’s beautifully illustrated with relatively simple and very sweet illustrations in a comic book format for kids 7 years old and up. The font is a nice size with a combination of CAPS for narration and upper and lower case for dialogue. The people are smiley cartoon (my categorization) in gentle and friendly settings, color and formatting.

The Cloak of St Joseph Visual Devotional is here!

I’ve been a fan of St. Joseph’s for quite some time…our son named after him just turned 21! My love and respect for St. Joseph only got stronger with the Consecration to St. Joseph a lot of us did last year and the Dedication of the Year to St. Joseph by Pope Francis.
