This new publication by the Lasallian Publications Committee of the Region of North America provides 52 stories from Lasallian school ministries, child and family youth service ministries, and retreat ministries. Each story focuses on how the “holy presence of God” has been experienced or seen through the eyes of personal witnesses.
An introduction gives an overview of how the holy presence of God has permeated the spirituality of St. John Baptist de La Salle.
“Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.”
This prayer highlights the immediate sacramental dimension of our daily lives. It is said daily in Lasallian Catholic schools throughout the world. Each of the brief 52 stories in this moving collection demonstrates God’s presence through the here and now, where God is seen to dwell within people’s lives.
In this volume, you will recognize God’s handiwork in the daily lives of those engaged in a wide variety of ministries and perhaps come to attend to similar previously unrecognized instances of God’s presence in your own life, in your own story.
All those in Gospel ministry – Christian, Catholic, Lasallian, etc. – will certainly find gems of God-filled experience that echo their own.
