Sorry for the absence from the blogosphere, but I’ve been engaged in several different things that hit at once. However, I’m very happy to return now with a warm recommendation for a great gem of a book by Diana Macalintal.
Diana has added to her repertoire The Work of Your Hands: Prayers for Ordinary and Extraordinary Moments of Grace (Collegeville: Liturgical Press, 2014). As Fr. Jim Martin, SJ, writes in his blurb for the book: “Every feel tongue-tied in prayer? Ever wonder what you could say to God and how you could say it? Let Diana Macalintal help. . . .” Jim, as always, is so right. This is a wonderful collection of prayers covering a beautiful array of situations, and my only complaint (Diana, are you reading this?) is that it ends too soon! I hope that there will be many follow-up collections to come.
