I found myself immediately sharing Brother Fred’s same feelings, convictions, doubts and fears, questions, high hopes and responses to God’s loving presence.

These are definitely psalms for our times. They ask hard questions about our values and the directions that our values take us as persons, as communities of faith, as nations seeking a new global awareness.

Fred is a religious brother in the Society of Jesus. Each year every Jesuit is supposed to make an eight day retreat where they leave their work and pray and reflect. Over the years he has written one or two of these at these retreats and finally put them together to create this book. When asked about a second book, he remarks, “It’ll take another 15 years”.
