Catholic Practices and Information in the Language of Today May 8, 2005
The Confirmed Catholic's Companion contains prayers, practices, spiritual disciplines and other tools for building and maintaining a deep and lasting relationship with God. Though it specifically addresses the newly confirmed, this is a rich resource for all Catholics. Glavich writes with a style and format suited to modern American life. Each page has wide margins that feature quick quotes (from spiritual leaders and the bible); cool web sites; trivial tidbits; big book (bible) search; for your spiritual health; short prayer; and FYI. The main text is easily searchable with its highlighted paragraphs, spaces for reader reflections, and generous subheads and extensive index.
Organizational features used in the chapter on the Catholic Life 24/7 include a web address for the Holy Father's daily intentions, quotes from St. Thomas More and Pope John XXIII, a blank space for personal thoughts on tapping the spirituality of daily work, bible references for Jesus' advice on praying, and a highlighted section with ideas for "praying during spare time." A trivial tidbit describes spiritual bouquets, and an FYI explains former and present Catholic practices of fast and abstinence.
