Door Into The Sacred

Full Product Description

A short but intense and beautifully written study of the 'Hail Mary' by the Irish theologian, poet and Dominican priest, Paul Murray. For almost an entire millennium the most commonly repeated prayer in the Church, apart from the Our Father, has been the Hail Mary. It's a prayer that, with great simplicity and ease, brings us at once into the mystery of God incarnate, the mystery of Jesus, son of Mary. For countless numbers of people over the centuries it has proved to be a threshold of grace, a real opening into the mystery and meaning of God's love, a 'holy door'. The Hail Mary is a prayer which is easy to say, easy to pray. But as Paul Murray shows in this short book it also has a radiance and depth of theological truth. "My hope in writing this tiny book is that, by giving space to some of the most moving and most profound reflections ever written on the Hail Mary, a door will open for the reader into a world in which the strenuous task of thinking and the easeful grace of feeling can both be considered sacred, and where wisdom and enchantment, theology and devotion, are found, at core, to be one and the same thing."
