Overview


"The Holy Spirit proceeds from the loving, eternal, reciprocal gaze between Father and Son. The Spirit is that 'fire of Love'…that is enkindled between them and seals their relationship from and for all eternity…. Thus it is through the baptismal gift of the Holy Spirit that life and love are enkindled within us."—From Chapter One

Enkindled: Holy Spirit, Holy Gifts brings the Spirit, through anecdote and example, into the lives of ordinary people. This treatment of the "neglected middle child" of the Blessed Trinity is for people who reflect while commuting to work, for those who pray while the baby is sleeping, for those who belong to parish discussion groups and the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, for those preparing to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation and for those who celebrate the divine generosity of the Gift-giving Spirit. Small groups or individuals will find valuable the prayers and reflection questions at the end of each chapter.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Two Catholic presses have issued slim volumes on the gifts of the Spirit promised to faithful Christians by the New Testament. The much-published lecturer Thomas Keating focuses on the inner and personal meaning of the gifts of the Spirit; while the Haase's focus on the broader ecclesial or social potential of the gifts. Keating on fortitude: "It gives us energy to overcome major obstacles in the way of our spiritual growth." Haase and Haase on the same: "It transforms ordinary people into prophets who stand up for what is right." Each of these volumes is valuable and engagingly written; Keating's is more suitable for meditation and spiritual retreat, the Haases' for church study groups. Recommended for collections where there is a strong Catholic readership. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
