About this Book
The seasons of the soul are the seasons of the liturgical calendar. The liturgy is about a relationship, and Sr. Carla Mae’s gorgeous images, poetry and prose describe how the liturgy is a means of deepening our relationship with God communally. The material comes highly recommended by RCIA coordinators as a perfect introduction to how the liturgy is the place where a loving God invites us – individually and as a body – into an ever more intimate experience of the Trinitarian relationship.
This series of nourishing meditations on the liturgical seasons is written by an excellent theologian. In addition to the Introduction, which is simply flabbergasting, readers will be taken by the bodily, indeed the womanly character of her spirituality, her associating the whole cosmos with the Incarnation, and her adroit, poetic play with symbols. A profound, short book, which deserves to be read more than once.

Seasons of the Soul is
a required text in the Lay Spiritual Formation Program at Aquinas Institute
of Theology. With inspiring images and metaphors, Sr. Carla Mae invites the
formation students to explore a deeper relationship with God and the Church
through the lens of the liturgical cycle. Grounded in reality and the ‘stuff
of life’, Seasons of the Soul finds a resonance with the life and spirituality
of the lay minister.

I recommend Seasons of
the Soul to all who wish to enter more deeply into the spirituality of the
liturgical seasons. The reflections, meditative questions, and poetry of Sr.
Carla Mae present a sacred doorway through which insights into our humanity,
our discipleship, and our relationship with Christ can be explored and which
go beyond the interesting facts and rituals of the seasons into their life-giving

Rooted in the rhythms
of the liturgy, this volume offers a rich resource for prayer and reflection
in every season of life.
