Favourite Prayers for Modern Living Keeping Hope

Rating
The prayers of Michel Quoist are not prayers in the usual sense, but meditations on life. Beginning with seemingly ordinary events, suddenly the light of faith is thrown on some part of our everyday existence. Set against the roads, offices and high-rise buildings that frame our modern world, this collection of practical prayers and meditations penetrates the heart of human experience. Whether celebrating the small victories of each day or offering support as we struggle with universal themes - among them self-acceptance, loneliness, despair, ageing, loss and grief - Quoist's prayers encourage us to celebrate and harness the tools and talents we have at our disposal to make the best of what we have. Reviews: `Michel Quoist sold millions of books in 27 different languages because of that ability to make prayer possible for the less contemplative among us' Fr. Brian D'Arcy, Sunday World `To those long familiar with Quoist's writing - and those who are new to him - this book may prove a landmark in the spiritual lives of many in a new century and a new millennium' - Peter Costello, The Irish Catholic

About the Author

A French priest and theologian, Michel Quoist (1918-97) leapt to prominence in the 1960s with his ground-breaking collection of prayers and meditations, Prayers of Life. Quoist gained a worldwide following with his innovative approach to prayer, which is rooted in the modern world and in the thoughts and feelings that define our everyday experiences. Publishing twelve books over a forty-year career consolidated his reputation as one of the most powerful Christian writers of his time. His work is still widely read, having been translated into twenty-seven languages.
