Songs of the Heart
Number of pages: 136
Inspiring spiritual reading for those who long to break open the psalms and pray them more deeply and attentively.
In this simple and profound book, best-selling author Joan Chittister offers poignant and challenging reflections on thirty psalms. They are all pieces of poetry and music, which people of faith have connected with profoundly for centuries. Her writing offers a spiritual oasis away from the stresses of a world that demands more than our human souls can sometimes bear. Praying and reflecting on these psalms will ignite a renewed sense of meaning.
“Sr. Joan’s prayers and reflections in Songs of the Heart are at once searing, challenging and deeply moving. I came away with new love and respect for the psalms as a way to enter the heart of God more deeply.” – Gwen Costello, author of Blessed Are You! A Prayerbook for Catholics
