Publisher's Description

Mission is an essential part of the vocation of every baptized Christian. In A Spirituality of Mission, Mark G. Boyer draws on a lifetime of priestly ministry to help readers think, reflect, and pray through that call with the aim of integrating it into their very lifestyle.     

The sixty vibrant and insightful reflections gathered here draw on the spirit and the liturgy of Holy Week and the Easter season, which remind us of the very birth of the church and origins of its mission. A Spirituality of Mission offers the newly baptized and longtime members of the church, as well as its clergy, an opportunity to recall the vocation we all share and to live it more faithfully and effectively.

Boyer, a retired priest of the Diocese of Springfield-Cape Girardeau, Missouri, is the author of fifty books, including three editions of The Liturgical Environment, on biblical and liturgical spirituality. He continues as a part-time instructor in the Religious Studies Department of Missouri State University, Springfield, where he has taught courses in New Testament and Bible and Film for twenty-eight years.

Editorial Reviews

Boyer's Spirituality of Mission provides a systematic pathway, a virtual guided tour through the Easter season. Its step by step approach provides a foundation from Scripture followed by a meditative exercise and response that allows the lay person to more deeply come to grips with both the basic elements of the Easter experience and calls them to action as they become a part of the call to mission. The volume easily could serve as a personal devotion or discipline and is also adaptable for small groups. It encourages without being overwhelming.
Dr. Victor H. Matthews, Dean, College of Humanities and Public Affairs, Missouri State University

As a Protestant with Catholic roots this book will be an important addition to my preparation for Holy Week. It provides the missing focus that can move us beyond the ritual to actual prayer, reflection on Scripture and focused action out into the world. I highly endorse this book for everyone who wants to experience Holy Week on a deeper spiritual level.
Rev. Vernon Meyer, Pastor, Sun Lakes United Church of Christ, Sun Lakes, Arizona
