Opening Ourselves to Christ in the Liturgy
In the Midst of Our Storms: Opening Ourselves to Christ in the Liturgy

by Fr. Roc O'Connor, S.J.

This book presents a Eucharistic spirituality that integrates each part of our lives. The method author Roc O’Connor, SJ, calls Liturgical Contemplative Practice, aids worshippers in becoming consciously present to the Real Presence. Through this method, believers discover how Word, gesture, and symbol guide them to encounter the Risen Christ and to journey to where the liturgy calls them. By bringing their resistances and vulnerabilities into their relationship with God, they become present not only to Christ but to those they are here to serve.

"A beautiful invitation into the riches of the liturgical life, presented in a way that will appeal to both priest celebrants and congregations alike, and that will enable all the faithful to more fully, actively, and consciously encounter Christ in worship and prayer." -- James Martin, SJ

"You will need an open heart when you open this book. Roc O'Connor will guide you through the landscape of the liturgy and the terrain of the spirit. As shepherd and poet, he leads a journey that will lighten your cares and enlighten your prayers." -- Paul Turner

Roc O'Connor, SJ, a Jesuit priest, currently serves at the Church of the Gesu in MIlwaukee, WI. As a founding member of the St. Louis Jesuits, he has composed music for the Catholic liturgy since 1974.
