Alleluias and Amens by Patricia Schnapp, RSM Illustrations by Maura Barga, RSM
From lyrical to colloquial, these poems are spin-offs of various gospels during "ordinary" time. Some are prayers, and others brief musings. They echo the range of our inner responses to the joys, losses, rituals, and surprises that compose our days. These ordinary human experiences are the materials from which spring both our "Alleluias" and "Amens."
