Product description


'Suggested intercessions keep farmers and gardeners in the foreground, and the book as a whole will appeal to the many who find growing things helpful in slowing down, being mindful for the world, and praying for others.' --James Dunkly, Sewanee Theological Review, vol 49.3


There has been a long association between the discipline and joy of gardening and that of prayer and modern spiritual life. But hitherto these have not been explored in any depth. The author shows that flowers, trees, herbs and shrubs are intrinsically linked to our spirituality. In good times and in troubled times, the garden, whatever its size, even a window-box collection of one's own favourite herbs, can evoke calm and provide an oasis for contemplation and healing. This third book falls neatly into three sections - From Easter to Pentecost, Ordinary Time (including Trinity Sunday, Corpus Christi, the Immaculate Heart of Mary) and Solemnities and Saints' Days - from St Catherine of Siena to St Augustine of Hippo. Jane Mossendew's books are entirely original. Some aspects of her work can be found in other books but here she unites a profound knowledge of gardening and nature's cycle with the rhythm and variations of the ecclesiastical and spiritual year. The author has a special knowledge of particular plants and their associations with religious festivals and the saints.

It is small surprise therefore that the popularity of Jane Mossendew's books is growing all the time, and that there is a television series in prospect.
