Heart Space: a compilation of prayers and reflections by Catholic women of Australia

Australian Catholic Bishops Conference, 2010

Summary

Women throughout Australia were invited to share their personal prayers and reflections - the murmurings of their hearts to God. The hope is that readers will find echoes of their own deepest spiritual needs and desires among these murmurings. Asking and listening are the warp and weft in the fabric of Heart Space. For the most part, Heart Space authors are not famous women: they are women that we recognise as mothers, daughter, wives, neighbours and friends. The texts are sometimes poetry and sometimes closer to prose. Few might be called ´art´ (whatever that is), but all have a ring of authenticity about them.
