Fr Paul Murray OP Publishes New Book

Preachers at Prayer

Preachers at Prayer is the title of Fr Paul Murray’s new book, the fourth of his books published by Word on Fire. 

The Order of Preachers is, of course, intensely active in many ways but in this book, drawing deeply on the Dominican spiritual tradition which he knows so well, Fr Paul emphasises the contemplation which is the foundation of any worthwhile apostolic activity. The Dominican ideal is lived by men and women who, Fr Paul writes, ‘have dared to go down to the root of their desire,and […] have the courage to stand still and wait for the warmth, for the fire of the Spirit of God, to come upon them and to capture their hearts once and for all. Fire – the searching, consoling, energizing fire of God’s infinite love’.

The book comes recommended by Bishop Robert Barron, of course, and by the Master of the Order, Fr Gerard Timoner OP, who wrote a foreword.
