  • With this book you can participate in a retreat in your own home! It presents a challenge to Christian living that will never be satisfied by will-power Christianity alone. The Beatitudes may be disquieting for some because many of the values they praise run counter to the values promoted by modern society.

     

    Praying the Beatitudes translates the challenge presented by the Beatitudes into areas of justice, care for the weak and wounded, peace issues. It is Gods unconditional love and the unfailing availability of his grace that will make the Beatitudes become a reality in the life of the Christian.

     

    Fr Max Oliva, a Jesuit, has been conducting seminars, retreats and workshops on faith and compassion since 1974. Here he draws from his personal experience and from the insight to Vatican II, to present a real call to conversion.
