Drawing from the poetry and journal of Gerard Manley Hopkins, who is considered a major 19th century English poet, editor Francis X. McAloon, S.J. draws us into Hopkins' intense joy in and sacramental view of nature as a manifestation of the beauty of the divine in the natural world. Includes a short introduction to Hopkins' life and work, questions to draw the reader into Hopkins' spiritual world, journaling suggestions and daily prayers. This 40-day journey is an invitation to personal meditation and/or group discussion. An inspiring journey to take at any time, especially through the seasons of Advent and Lent.
