Advent is a time of prayer and I have three new books to share with you. You may add them to your wish list for Christmas or just be aware that at some future date you want to read them. Two are the first books in a new series in Catholic Spirituality for Adults published by Orbis Books. I actually ordered both without knowing that they were part of this series. One is Reconciliation by Robert Morneau; the other is Prayer by Joyce Rupp; both were published in 2007.
The third book is Sister Wendy on Prayer by Wendy Beckett. It is a real delight to read and anyone who has read Wendy will love it. Sister Wendy is known for her popular television series and books on art history, but she is a contemplative and shares her own thoughts on prayer in this book.
