Edith Prendergast, R.S.C., the longtime director of the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress (the nation's largest annual gathering of Catholics), stirs readers' enthusiasm and fires their imaginations with this inspiring set of reflections on faith and the call to serve one another in the Church and the world.

Edith Prendergast, R.S.C., issues a clarion call to both conversion and renewal, inviting readers to enter more deeply into the mind and heart of Christ and to live as his messengers in the Church and the world. In a world burdened by anxiety and fear, where human weakness and social sin tear at the fabric of every institution, Prendergast reminds her readers that each one has been given an amazing gift of faith and calls them to revitalize their commitment to others.

Prendergast's compelling spiritual vision is enriched by her skilled use of scripture, the saints and mystics, and contemporary writers and poets. She also draws from the little epiphanies of ordinary, everyday life - be they the words of a child or the insights of a homeless man. With a spirit of reverence and delight, each reflection harmonizes a host of voices that both inspire and energize her readers.

About the Author:

Edith Prendergast, R.S.C., is a member of the Religious Sisters of Charity and has been the director of the Office of Religious Education in the Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles since 1987. She is the beloved director of the archdiocese's annual Religious Education Congress - an event that attracts over 40,000 participants from around the world. Prendergast has served on the board of directors for the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership and has published articles in Religion Teacher's Journal and Living with Christ.

Review:

"Since I have speaking at the Anaheim Congress from almost the beginning, I can truthfully say that Sr. Edith has been the shining light who has illuminated it for many of those years--both personally and professionally. Her stellar and passionate keynotes, gathered beautifully here, will inspire and educate us for years to come!"--Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation


"This moving and poetic book is all about grace, another name for God's effective love at work in our lives. And no one is more credible to write it than Edith Prendergast. I say this because Edith herself has been such a means of grace not only to the Los Angeles Archdiocese but to the American Catholic community, especially through the famous Religious Education Congress that she has organized these many years. This book comes from the heart of a great woman with a deep Catholic faith. Sit back and treat yourself!"--Thomas H. Groome, Professor of Theology and Religious Education, Boston College


"Sr. Edith Prendergast touches our hearts and souls with her profound insights. What a valuable book to anchor us in God's presence!"--Anne Bryan Smollin, Author of Live, Laugh, and Be Blessed


"Grace Abounds delightfully dusts off the true essentials of the spiritual life. Weaving poetry, scripture, and theology together with meaningful stories and lessons, Edith Prendergast enables us not only to be more deeply grateful for all we already have, but also opens us up to the vast possibilities still there for us in our relationship with God. Truly nourishing." --Robert J. Wicks, Author of Prayerfulness
