From Glory to Glory
From Glory to Glory encourages scriptural/communal prayer as a path not only to personal holiness but to helping the community achieve its mission of reaching out to others. It offers abundant practical advice about starting a prayer group based on biblical readings and provocative discussion questions. Texts are selected from the Gospel of John and the Letters of Paul.
“Woven like a fine tapestry of historical context, theological reflection and practical advice for guided prayer and reflection, From Glory to Gloryis a wonderful resource for anyone seeking to deepen their friendship with God. Sr. Rea is a teacher for our time, revealing the ways in which Paul and John connect us to the Spirit, keeping us in loving union with Christ, which is exactly what makes us Church today. This book makes Paul and John our friends along the spiritual journey.” Mary McGinnity Executive Director, Ignatian Volunteer Corps “This book brings together solid theology, scriptural exegesis, and expert spiritual guidance, with selected passages, keen questions and helpful suggestions for individual and group prayer. An excellent way, based on Paul and John, into our own experience of Jesus and His Spirit.” Jean-Marc Laporte, S.J. Jesuit Center of Spirituality, Halifax, NS
