..extend the joy of Easter in our daily lives


By: 'Lesley Maher, The Catholic Weekly' - 29th of March 2009

‘50 Days of Glory’ by James M. FitzPatrick is a valuable resource to help us enter fully into the spirituality of the joyous season of Easter. Through scripture and reflection, meditation and prayers of thanksgiving, we are reminded that these 50 days are days of great celebration, that they are the culmination of events that lead us into a brighter light still, without which Christ’s story would be incomplete. They are days of prayer, days of glory and days in which our spirits exult.

 

The illustrations by Dorothy Woodward RSJ are truly inspirational in their simplicity. They begin with the empty tomb and culminate with the image of the Holy Spirit descending on the disciples.

 

For many of us the joy of Easter begins and ends on Easter Sunday. Very quickly we are back into the mundane routine that Monday morning inevitably brings. ‘50 Days of Glory’ will help us to extend the joy of Easter in our daily lives, as we walk with the risen Christ and rejoice in his unconditional love of us.

..unpretentious little book


By: 'Madonna magazine' - 10th of August 2009

This unpretentious little book contains fourteen short meditations on the Easter appearances of Jesus to his disciples. A brief passage from the Gospel is followed by a few comments situating the passage in the Gospel, a brief passage from John’s Gospel to meditate on, two or three questions to put to our own lives, and a concluding prayer.

Each meditation offers a good starter for prayer, and together they help shape the reflective time that leads to Pentecost.
