Father Benedict Groeschel

Sunday March 02nd 2008, 3:01 am

Father Benedict Groeschel is a prolific author and television preacher, but he never wastes a word. In a new book, Praying with the Creed, he gives brief meditations on the articles of the ancient creeds. Each chapter is structured for a group prayer meeting, but it would serve just as well for private prayer. The author supplements his own reflections with passages from the writings of the saints as well as modern theologians such as Matthias Scheeben and Romano Guardini. Each chapter ends with questions for meditation and a closing prayer. The book is the first of four projected volumes that correspond to the four major divisions of the Catechism of the Catholic Church: creed, worship, morals, and prayer.
