March 2022: Calm the soul

Located in the Parish Library: Prayers 118

Calm the soul by The Poor Clares, Galway

With practical advice, The Poor Clares of the praying community at Nun’s Island, Galway, look at how we can slowly build up the amount of time spent in prayer and meditation in our daily lives, to achieve a sense of peace and well-being. Presented with illustrations drawn by the sisters, the book combines reflections on familiar prayers, such as the Our Father and Hail Mary, with meditations on Scripture, and prayers for specific needs such as depression, self-esteem and sickness. Although some prayers and quotations are very familiar, the descriptions help us to approach them with fresh insights.
