100 Holy Hours For Women
“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you” (James 4:8). Christ waits for us, every day, in the Eucharist. But, in the chaos of our lives, we often find it difficult to draw near to him. Even when we make the time to be in his presence, we lose focus, become distracted, or grow impatient with ourselves. 100 Holy Hours for Women provides a solution with its collection of one hundred Eucharistic meditations, giving inspiration for directed, efficacious prayer before Our Lord in the Eucharist. Whether you are a mother, a single woman, or a consecrated religious, this spiritually uplifting work is a valuable resource for cultivating an intimate relationship with our Eucharistic Lord.
Originally written as a religious sister’s guide for daily adoration, 100 Holy Hours for Women contains a plethora of profound spiritual insight into the mystery of the Eucharist. Each of the meditations focuses on a single verse from Scripture. The first part of the meditation explores the deeper implications of the verse, especially in light of the Eucharist. Then, the second half of the meditation takes the form of a personal examination and a prayer, with questions and exhortations to encourage the adorer to look at and cultivate her own spiritual life.
These meditations draw from the entirety of Sacred Scripture, particularly following Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. Through them, learn to look to the Virgin Mary and the angels as models of perfect adoration. Be inspired to comfort Our Lord in his agony, as he suffered it in his passion and as he suffers it today through people’s abuse and neglect of the Eucharist, his great gift to the Church. By fruitful meditation and grace, develop virtues such as gratitude, faith, love, trust, and humility, all of which are absolutely essential for living in union with Christ.
The Witness of Early Christian Women- Mothers of the Church
The Witness of Early Christian Women: Mothers of the Church demonstrates the radical nature of Christianity's understanding of women and their roles, especially in a pagan society that viewed them as little more than property. The variety of women here is striking: poor widows, consecrated virgins, heroic martyrs, but also businesswomen, the wealthy, and an indomitable traveler on a world tour.
Each chapter features a concise biography accompanied by writings from the early Church about the woman in question.
The Mothers of the Church include:
• Holy Women of the New Testament
• St. Blandina
• St. Perpetua and St. Felicity
