Refreshing Water from Ancient Wells

Full Product Description

This beautiful collection of readings celebrates the thought of the women of the Church from the early Christian centuries to the present. The editor has carefully selected and made eminently readable excerpted passages from Church Mothers both famous and obscure, women religious of all ages, cultures, and centuries, whose wisdom has been heralded or heretofore neglected-among many: --Catherine of Sienna; Theresa of Avila; Julian of Norwich; Mechthild of Magdeburg; Dhouda; Aemiliana; Proba; Syncletica; Leoba; Ruhm Designed to deliver short, intense "drinks" of spiritual wisdom for use in daily reflection or prayer services and liturgies, each passage is offered one to a page, and is supplemented alongside with a selection from Scripture, as well as suggestions for its use. Biographical sketches of the writers are thoughtfully included. For anyone wishing to expand his or her spiritual horizon, this streamlined work represents an achievement as important and refreshing as its subject matter.

Refreshing Water from Ancient Wells by Mary E Penrose was published by Paulist Press International,U.S. in July 1999. The ISBN for Refreshing Water from Ancient Wells is 9780809142248.
