Book Corner

Here is a selection of titles for Lent and Easter for consideration:

The Way of the Carmelites by James McCaffrey.

Carmelite spirituality is based on a deep prayerful relationship with God, His presence within us and concern for our neighbour. This beautifully written book is a spiritual companion introducing you to the riches of Carmel. Prayer, in the Carmelite tradition, is friendship with God in a silent communion with the Spirit. With our eyes fixed on the vulnerability of Jesus and on his unrequited love for us, we are transformed and strengthened to give ourselves as he did. Includes discussion questions for a more practical approach.
