Spiritual practices: old and new

Catholic Spiritual Practices: A Treasury of Old and New, co-edited by School of Theology and Ministry Associate Professor Colleen Griffith and Professor Thomas Groome, is the latest title from the award-winning Church in the 21st Century Center Book Series. The volume is a collection of essays by some of the most respected Catholic writers of today that offers “a treasury of formative practices that will vivify and nurture…spiritual life.” Much like athletic or musical talent, faith flourishes with practice, according to editors. “Practices are an enormously important though under-heralded aspect of our Christian faith,” said Griffith, director of spiritual studies at STM. The volume is organized into three kinds of practice: prayer, care and spiritual growth. Groome and Griffith also contributed essays to the volume, as did Barbara Anne Radtke, an instructional designer for C21 Online, STM’s continuing education program, who writes on spiritual practices in the digital age. “Our collection has treasures old and new,” said Groome. “I think everyone can find something here that they will find engaging and valuable to their ‘practice.’” Read more in the Boston College Chronicle.
