Sacred Reading for Advent and Christmas
Douglas Leonard - Apostleship of Prayer

Sacred Reading for Advent and Christmas 2015-2016

"An innovative way to be invited, with gentle wisdom, into meeting Jesus in your prayer."

"Sacred Reading offers a superb introduction to Ignatian prayer that anyone can use. Too often Ignatian prayer is seen as something reserved only for Jesuits, for people trained in the Spiritual Exercises, or for those who have time for a directed retreat. But this book, created by experts in the traditions of Ignatian prayer, helps the reader to encounter Jesus through short scripture passages, inviting questions, and accessible reflections. It’s an innovative way to be invited, with gentle wisdom, into meeting Jesus in your prayer."
Rev. James Martin, S.J. Author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage

The Living Gospel daily devotions for Advent 2015

"What a great way to prepare for Christmas!"

"What a great way to prepare for Christmas! Sr. Terry Rickard, O.P., blends wonderful stories with the Advent gospels, inviting us to remember that the Word becomes flesh in us and around us every day of our lives. The daily reminder to act on what we have just prayed is most helpful—not just a nice idea but a way of living."
Mary Ann McLaughlin Director of Spiritual Life Archdiocese of Boston

Exploring Advent with Luke: 4 Questions for Spriritual Growth

Exploring Advent with Luke: Four Questions for Spriritual Growth

"A true celebration of the Good News.”

“It’s refreshing to find a deceptively simple book of devotion that gets back to the heart of the Christian pilgrimage as a romance. We are part of a love story, and we learn to love by being willing to live into deep questions.

"In the monastic community where I was trained as a priest, we were told constantly that God is madly in love with us and wants us to come home. This is a book about that homecoming—a timely one in an age of estrangement. But how are we to read the drama of Christmas? Primarily, through the door of amazement, reading the stories with the eyes of love. This is a generous book—a true celebration of the Good News.”
Alan Jones, Dean Emeritus, Grace Cathedral, San Francisco
