Sr. Jean Marie Dwyer, OP

Every human person has a fundamental call to peace and communion with all our brothers and sisters. However, we can often bemoan the situation of violence and hatred in our world, and feel impotent to do anything. In her third book, Sr. Jean-Marie Dwyer, OP says that  we can do something. The book explores the importance of the individual’s encounter with God in the various periods of history, and the impact this encounter has in the movement of history. It is in these important moments of encounter that human history moves toward its end.

The Sacred Place of Prayer
sr. jean marie dwyer, op

This book considers the human person as the sacred place of prayer. The first three chapters lay philosophical, biblical and theological groundwork for the understanding of the human person as the sacred place of prayer. Subsequent chapters develop this truth more fully. The chapters on desert spirituality, illusions and finding our center give insight into how we find our true self and our place of home and belonging. A major premise is that everything flows from our creation in God’s image. Each of us is the privileged and sacred place of prayer.
