Treasures Holy and Mystical: A Devotional Journey for Today's Catholics by Fr. Philip Neri Powell O.P.
In Treasures Holy and Mystical, Fr. Philip Neri Powell presents devotions for disciples of the twenty-first century: seven new novenas, including three mystical novenas; eleven new litanies that focus on a journey toward holiness through a relationship with the Holy Spirit; and a new rosary prayer based on the beatitudes. Fr. Powell's prayers and devotions are rooted in the Catholic tradition, yet they speak to the hearts of today.
Philip Neri Powell holds a BA in philosophy/history, an MA in English, an MDiv, and a PhD in English (emphasis in poetry). After studying at Aquinas Institute in St. Louis, Missouri, and Oxford University, Fr. Powell entered studies at the Angelicum. Fr. Powell taught spirituality, liturgy, classical western literature, Catholic theology, and philosophical theology at the University of Dallas for three years before moving to Rome. He recently completed a pontifical license in philosophy and will begin work on a PhD.
