Holy Hour Meditations on the Seven Last Words of Christ
Charles M. Murphy
Foreword by Cardinal William Levada
This creative prayer compendium invites readers to spend and hour in eucharistic adoration while meditating on the seven last words of Jesus and shows them how to do it. Charles Murphy also profiles seven contemporary Catholics - like Edith Stein and John Paul II - who are inspiring madels of eucharistic devotion.
Like many devotions that fell out of favor after the Second Vatican Council, eucharistic adoration has seen swelling popularity in recent years. Msgr. Charles Murphy, author of the acclaimed The Spirituality of Fasting, reintroduces this practice for today. Murphy brings together reflections on the seven last words of Jesus with the profiles of seven modern Christians known for their devotion to the eucharist, including Simone Weil, Edith Stein, Dorothy Day, Blassed John XXIII, Blessed John Paul II, Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, and St. Margaret Mary Alacoque.
"An excellent companion to anyone on the journey to deeper conversion and joy in the Eucharistic Lord." - Msgr. Kevin W. Irwin, former dean of the School of Theology and Religious Studies, Catholic University of America
