Item description for Just One Year: A Global Treasury of Prayer and Worship by Op Timothy Radcliffe...
Overview An indispensable resource for individuals, groups, and parishes who wish to include poor communities throughout the world in their prayer and worship. An international publishing event, this new edition of prayers from all corners of the globe, compiled by Fr. Timothy Radcliffe and sponsored by Christian Aid and Just One World (CAFOD), will inspire individuals and nurture Christian communities throughout the United States. The prayers and devotions come from the Bible and from saints such as Augustine, poets such as Tagore, role models such as Mother Teresa, writers such as Henri Nouwen, peacemaking organizations such as Hunger for Justice, and ordinary people such as Iris Perez, a religion teacher in New York. The book begins with Advent, awaiting the birth of Christ, and then makes its way through Christmas, Lent, Holy Week, Easter, the Ascension and Pentecost. It can be picked up at any time of the year. This unique devotional reminds us that we belong with people who are different from us, whom we do not even know and yet are our brothers and sisters in God. It includes those who are unnoticed and ignored, who live in poverty, war, disease and injustice. If we can hear each other's hope and love, each other's songs, then we will be drawn together and Christianity will fulfill its vocation, to be a sign of our unity in God.
