In the Midst of Our Storms: Opening Ourselves to Christ in the Liturgy
By Rev. Roc O'Connor SJ
Fr. Roc draws upon his many years as a priest, liturgist and hymn writer (St. Louis Jesuits) to present a Eucharistic spirituality that integrates each part of our
lives. Fr. Roc calls this Liturgical
Contemplative Practice which aids worshippers in becoming consciously present
to the Real Presence.
Through this method believers discover how Word,
gesture, and symbol guide them to encounter the Risen Christ and to
journey where the liturgy calls them. By bringing their resistances
and vulnerabilities into their relationship with God they become
present not only to Christ, but to those they are here to serve.
Paperback/ 5 3/8" x 7"/ 128 pages.
"A beautiful invitation into the riches of the liturgical life,
presented in a way that will appeal to both priest celebrants and
congregations alike, and that will enable all the faithful to more
fully, actively, and consciously encounter Christ in worship and
prayer." James Martin, SJ
"You will need an open heart when you open this book. Roc O'Connor will
guide you through the landscape of the liturgy and the terrain of the
spirit. As shepherd and poet, he leads a journey that will lighten your
cares and enlighten your prayers." Paul Turner
