Soul of Christ: Meditations on a Timeless prayer

SOUL_CHRIST_FINALI wrote this book to share my joy in the gift of the Eucharist and daily Eucharistic prayer: the Mass and an hour and a half of adoration. The “Soul of Christ” prayer is an easy way “in” to deeper Eucharistic prayer, and has a centuries-long tradition of being prayed during retreats and before or after receiving Communion. In addition to being part of the Jesuit tradition (St. Ignatius of Loyola included the Soul of Christ prayer in his famed Spiritual Exercises), it is also a Pauline prayer, wonderfully expressing Saint Paul’s phrase, “For me, to live is Christ!”, as explained by Blessed James Alberione, the Founder of the Pauline Family, who helped to make Saint Paul accessible to people today.

Each chapter includes a phrase-by-phrase meditation on one petition of this beautiful prayer and an hour of adoration that links the petition with a Scripture passage and a Eucharistic prayer from Saint Paul, Blessed James Alberione, or the tradition of the Church.

Sister Marie Paul has also published a number of other books including:

Bread of Life: Prayers for Eucharistic Adoration

breadoflifecovercompressedThis comprehensive sourcebook for deepening one’s Eucharistic prayer includes: “prayer-starters”, readings, prayers according to theme, and three complete hours of adoration.

Life For the World: A Way of Eucharistic Adoration for Today

imgresOut of Print. I edited this small collection of my favorite quotations from the writings of Blessed James Alberione to highlight the vision and depth of his spirituality. These “knock your socks off” quotations are divided according to theme: prayer, Jesus Master, the Word of God, the Eucharist, and mission. A powerful introduction to a spirituality for our times in the very words of the man himself.

It was such a gift to have Sr. Marie Paul join us at yHope. She really challenged the young adults and me to allow the Word of God to “sink deep” into our very being. The young adults were impressed with her love for Mission and her profound depth of Spirituality. Her talk became a great boost to our practice of Lectio Divina before Jesus present in the Eucharist.
