Best-selling spiritual writer Joan Chittister explores the many ways we can tap into the wisdom of our hearts.
In the vein of Breath of the Soul and Songs of the Heart, Joan Chittister brings us fifty different ways to explore the role that our hearts can play in our spirituality and humanity. With the wisdom of an attentive sage, Chittister writes brief, two-page contemplations to help us unlock our hearts and the spiritual depths within.
She writes “The ideas with which we fill our hearts determine the way we live our lives. Those are the things we draw on in those moments when we need to reach down deep inside ourselves for character, courage, endurance, and hope.” Exploring this throughout the book, Chittister shows us how to reach deep into what is in each and every one of us.
Sr. Joan Chittister is a prolific author of more than 50 books, a columnist, an award winner, a renowned international lecturer and one of the best-known and most influential Catholics in the world today. She is a member of the Benedictine Sisters of Erie, Pennsylvania.
