Publisher's Description

"The world is charged with the grandeur of God."
Gerard Manley Hopkins
 
Wisdom from the greatest spiritual writers of the two-thousand-year Catholic tradition
 
The Grandeur of God collects classic readings that give readers a sense of the depth, beauty, and richness of Catholic spiritual writing. These selections resonate with the truth expressed famously by the great Jesuit poet Gerard Manley Hopkins, "The world is charged with the grandeur of God." They resonate with the sacramental, Catholic vision that sees God in all things. While not comprehensive or exhaustive, the book does offer readers a starting point on their journey into the vast storehouse of Catholic writing.
The Grandeur of God is organized chronologically, beginning with St. Paul and ending with writings from Pope John Paul II, Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, and Henri Nouwen. Also included are selections from Thomas Aquinas, Dorothy Day, Hildegard of Bingen, Ignatius Loyola, John of the Cross, Julian of Norwich, Thomas Merton, Oscar Romero, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Mother Teresa, and Thérèse of Lisieux.
