Compassion was the center of Jesus’ ministry and his mission for his disciples—and for us. Bestselling and award-winning author and retreat leader Joyce Rupp gives you the words to develop compassion in yourself as never before and to reenergize your ability to offer loving kindness to those around you.
Compassion can change a heart, change a life, change a world. But we have to learn how to be compassionate and Joyce Rupp—codirector of the Servite Center of Compassionate Presence—can guide us.
Forty original prayers, blessings, and meditations by Rupp will help us practice themes of compassion: as a way of life, welcoming ourselves, the river of suffering, from hostility to hospitality, a thousand unbreakable links, and compassionate presence.
To be used alone or as a helpful companion to Rupp’s Boundless Compassion book and program, this collection of prayers will inspire anyone to change the world.
My Review of Prayers of Boundless Compassion
Prayers of Boundless Compassion by Joyce Rupp is a beautiful companion to her book Boundless Compassion. It can be used in conjunction with her book, as the prayers correspond to the subject material in her book, or they can be used alone to pray for the gift of compassion for ourselves and others. This book of prayers can be used everyday to lift our hearts and minds to God in regards to those who are suffering. There is no greater gift we can give each other than to offer intercessory prayers.
In addition to the beautiful prayers with insight to the suffering of others and sometimes ourselves, Prayers of Boundless Compassion is a wonderful way of praying, especially for those who have a difficult time putting their intentions into words. When you don’t know what to say, or are having a difficult time praying, this book can help you meditate individually or as a group. A wonderful aid for those on their journey of compassion for it offers insight to the suffering of others as well as those who are their caregivers or suffering themselves. There are so many prayers in this little book, it can offer something for everyone.
I want to thank Ave Maria Press via NetGalley for an advanced reader copy of Boundless Prayers of Compassion for a fair and honest review.
