For the Domino-phils on your gift list, here are some very interesting titles published by New City Press, the publishing arm of Focolare:
15 Days of Prayer with St. Dominic
15 Days of Prayer with St. Thomas Aquinas
and most importantly,
15 Days of Prayer with St. Catherine of Siena will be coming out in January.
Here's the publisher's description:
Saint Catherine issues an invitation and challenge: change direction, move away from self and toward God and neighbor. This 15-day journey will teach you to focus on Christ and be transformed by him, sharing the knowledge and joy of his love with others. The Cross is the central axis of these fifteen days because it is the place that leads to God. This is the vision of spiritual awakening in Christ that Saint Catherine offers us.
The authors (and one a Jesuit, no less!)
Chantal van der Plancke has a doctorate in theology, and is a professor at Lumen Vitae, the international center for pastoral studies and catechesis in Brussels. André Knockaert, S.J. is the former director of Lumen Vitae, and is a professor and a theological consultant for the Archdiocese of Malines-Brussels.
