Easter-Season Meditations

This third edition of Bishop Morneau's successful seasonal meditation series takes the reader through the 40 days of the Easter season.

Keyed to the Gospels, each meditation includes a brief Gospel reflection, a poem or inspirational passage from a beloved Christian poet such as Gerard Manley Hopkins, Jessica Powers, and R.S. Thomas, and a prayer from the church's liturgy. A poet himself, Bishop Morneau's meditations make for deep spiritual reading, yet are simple enough to inspire during a brief quiet time in a busy day.

Reviews and endorsements

“Our journey is long and we need the sound of a human voice. The disciples heard the voice of Jesus and recognized the speaker in the breaking of the bread. We too can be guided and consoled, challenged and affirmed by the voice of our companions, poets or otherwise. The main thing is that we must never travel alone.”
from the Preface

“This is a special book to pray with and to be enjoyed as the poetic revelations of our Lord are exposed.”

There are seven weeks between Easter and Pentecost. This volume of poems and ponderings offers one form of companionship for this beautiful season.
