Bread of Life: Prayers for Eucharistic Adoration Written and compiled with Madonna Therese Ratliff. Pauline Books & Media, 2004. This comprehensive sourcebook for deepening one’s Eucharistic prayer includes: “prayer-starters”, readings, prayers according to theme, and three complete hours of adoration. I was thrilled when Cardinal O’Malley of the Archdiocese of Boston made this a Lenten gift to every priest in the archdiocese several years ago.
Christ Lives in Me Pauline Books & Media, 2003, Out of Print. I edited this small collection of my favorite quotations from the writings of Blessed James Alberione to highlight the vision and depth of his spirituality. These “knock your socks off” quotations are divided according to theme: prayer, Jesus Master, the Word of God, the Eucharist, and mission. A powerful introduction to a spirituality for our times in the very words of the man himself.
Life for the World–A Way of Eucharistic Adoration for Today Pauline Books & Media, 2003, Out of Print. Both an introduction and a “how-to” guide to the holistic and Scripturally-based method for Eucharistic adoration developed by Blessed James Alberione. Includes 12 hours of adoration and a selection of prayers. I’m hoping someday we’ll be able to re-release it.
“Mary’s Journey of Surrender” in The Nativity Story: Contemplating Mary’s Journey of Faith. Pauline Books & Media, 2006, Out of Print. A collection of essays written by women of diverse backgrounds on spiritual aspects of Mary’s journey, I wrote the chapter on faith and surrender at the Annunciation. The book, released simultaneously with The Nativity Story, is wonderfully complementary to the film.
