Our Holy Yearnings: Life Lessons for Becoming Our Truest Selves
Product DescriptionNew for Fall 2014
by Joan Chittister
This newest treasury of Sister Joan’s wisdom explores how God calls each of us to become fully alive. Here she reflects on the myth of perfection, our need for failure, the power of true humility, reverence for the created world, and the search for God.
“When God is the ‘monos,’ the only goal of our lives,” she says, “we are living a ‘monastic’ life, whatever the shape—married, single, or religious—the monastery of my own particular soul-life may be.”
This is Joan Chittister at her finest—brilliant, brave, and deeply mindful of the infinite possibilities that exist in each of us.
This is the newest in the Joan Chittister offerings at Twenty-Third Publications which includes:
Aspects of the Heart,
The Breath of the Soul: Reflections on Prayer,
God's Tender Mercy: Reflections on Forgiveness
