A Great Book for Prayer

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.

Macalintal Work of Your HandsDiana 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.
