A concise and enriching guide to the prayers every catechist teaches, this beautiful book by Janet Schaeffler, OP will be welcomed by catechists, religion teachers, prayer groups, and anyone seeking a deeper, more attentive prayer life. Beginning with a beautiful line-by-line reflection on the Our Father, Schaeffler examines ten prayers from the Catholic tradition, including the Hail Mary, the Memorare
, the Act of Contrition, and even the Grace Before Meals. With background on each prayer’s origins, perspectives on their meanings in our lives today, thoughtful reflection questions, and practical suggestions for extending the prayers in the classroom and at home, she offers a path for anyone of any age to “listen for the comfort, and become aware of the challenge” of our great treasury of Catholic prayers.
