Prayers from Michel Quoist, the multi-million bestselling publishing phenomenon, available for the first time as an ebook
The prayers of Michel Quoist are not prayers in the usual sense, but meditations on life. Beginning with seemingly ordinary events, suddenly the light of faith is thrown on some part of our ordinary, everyday existence. Set against the roads, offices and high-rise buildings that frame our modern world, this collection of practical prayers and meditations penetrates the heart of human experience.
Rooted in the modern world and in the thoughts and feelings that define our everyday experience, they celebrate our small victories and offer support as we struggle with universal themes — among them self-acceptance, loneliness, despair, ageing, loss and grief. Quoist’s prayers encourage us to celebrate and harness the tools and talents we have at our disposal to make the best of what we have.
