Item description for Praying With Catherine McAuley (Companions for the Journey) by Sister Helen Marie Burns & Sheila Carney...
Overview Best known as the founder of the Sisters of Mercy, Catherine McAuley's original intention was simply to make some lasting efforts for the relief of the suffering and instruction of the ignorant. Practical and creative, Mother McAuley began an employment agency for young women, a commercial laundry, an adult education program, a school, and a small shop to sell the handiwork of young women associated with her House of Mercy. Perhaps her greatest contribution to the church, however, is the spirituality that enlivened her mission of mercy-a fresh and fertile blending of the contemplative spirit and the compassionate heart. Part of the Companions for the Journey Series of twenty-two favorite saints and spiritual guides, ready to accompany readers on their faith journey! Ten to fifteen themes that guided the life of an honored saint or spiritual guide are presented in each title of this series, showing how the subject of each book lived those themes, while making connections to our current time so that readers can apply the principles to their own lives. Every title features selections of the saint or spiritual guide's writings, commentaries that provide historical context and root the saint or spiritual guide's wisdom in Scripture, and suggested prayer exercises in each chapter. The Word Among Us Press is especially pleased to present these favorites in the Companions for the Journey Series, which for fifteen years has been read by many thousands of Catholics.
