Special Order Item
Reintroduces the practice of eucharistic adoration for today, offering a simple guide for those new to it. Murphy explores the deep scriptural and human meaning of each of the seven sayings of Jesus. These meditations are enriched by the witness of Simone Weil, Edith Stein, Dorothy Day, Blessed John XXIII, Blessed John Paul II, Blessed Teresa of Calcutta and St Margaret Mary Alacoque who shared in the cross of Christ and were sustained and strengthened by their devotion to the Eucharist. Each chapter also contains dialogue questions for conversation with Christ. A book for any season, it is also suitable for meditation apart from eucharistic adoration.
