Running into the Arms of God

Stories of Prayer, Prayer as Story

by Patrick Hannon, CSC ’88 M.Div. (ACTA Publications)


The Holy Cross priest here shares the experiences that speak to him of prayer. In 21 stories of work, of love, of pain and hope and family, he finds that each lived moment “holds forth the possibility of our being found by the God of Creation who because of His very nature searches us out.” Each chapter is organized around the liturgical hours of the monastic day.

The foreword is by Brian Doyle ’78, editor of Portland Magazine.
