Prayers for planetary pilgrim Apr 29, 2008
This is not just an ordinary book, but a book of life that gives me guidance on how to be a "good" pilgrim. I use this book daily to keep in contact with the source of life-- Jesus Christ. This is a holistic prayer guide that enables me to pray for others also.
A good friend gave me a copy of this 10 years ago. As this has helped me, I purchased 2 copies for my friends so this can boost their lives also-- the way it has guided me in my journey.
Prayers for a Planetary Pilgrim Jan 8, 2008
This is a sensitive and inclusive look at spirituality. The prayers and writings will lift people into a realm of thoughtful peace and yet goad readers into action.
My daily prayer guide for the past 15 years Oct 11, 2007
This book has always made it back to the top of my book pile on my night stand -- for the past 15 years. It presents a deeply spiritual approach to prayer with pauses for silent prayer and meditation. I especially like the prayers by time of day, day of the week and season of the year. There are prayers for different life transitions and for different moods. I like the focus on nature and on the vastness of the universe as witnessed by contemplating outer space. I am a spirit having a human experience. In this way, I can relate to the concept of a planetary pilgrim. I feel as though my life is a pilgrimage. And my life itself is continuous prayer of gratitude. This book supports me in this perspective. I am grateful for having found this book. It has enriched my prayer life beyond measure.
A Wonderful book to keep by the bedside May 29, 2000
Having a bad day? There is probably something here to make it better.
Edward Hays has a great understanding of the nature of man, and the many situations we come up against which challenge us everyday. He has a unique ability to bring one back to the spiritual path....in a loving, non-judgmental way. He is very encouraging in the spiritual pursuits, and has very practical advice on how to walk the path. The "poems" are great...and a few are literally "dog-eared" in my book.
He fosters a sense of "community" among all who seek something beyond our mundane world...something which is worth our efforts to find.
Best of all.....he communicates his message with a feeling of love for all his fellow "pilgrims".
Something for Every Occasion Mar 25, 2000
Along with Prayers for the Domestic Church, this book has become a handbook for me. There is a prayer (I call them prayer poems) for almost every life occasion and they are filled with beauty. Fr. Hays celebrates the awesome moments and reminds us that the seemingly mundane is also filled with wonder.
