Overview

This book offers a reflective journey through life and Scripture to finding inner peace, acceptance and a more fulfilling existence. It includes reflections, Scripture passages, life-questions and some practical ways of responding to them. This book can be used alone in quiet personal reflection or with others in group situations. It could be a companion at a retreat; it could be the means by which parish groups might share faith together. Used slowly over time, this book will keep fresh the challenge to forgive and love oneself and others. Finally, even in the midst of human experience of wrongdoing, mistakes, guilt, shame, and a sense of abandonment by God, this book encourages a particular vision of God: the God who is faithful to us in our experience of disappointment and let-down, the God who still believes in us, the God who does not hold the past against us, and the God who has plans for us to follow.

About the Author

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This brief volume, an Irish publication imported by Dufour, is the work of the parish priest of Clogher in County Tyrone. Not quite a standard devotional text, nor yet a reflection on the liturgy, Flanagan's book is a highly structured series of meditations for personal spiritual growth, each section including a passage of Scripture, reflections on spiritual obstacles, and a prayer. VERDICT This exemplifies the best of contemporary Irish Catholicism—simple, fluent, and direct. Ideal for the traditional Catholic reader in Ireland or America.
