A Book of Vigils

Christopher L. Webber

Jan/2000, PAPERBACK, 6 x 9

ISBN-13: 9780898693836



This useful book falls in the category of resources for structuring liturgies to fit local occasions. In addition to seven complete vigil services inspired by the ancient monastic discipline of nighttime prayer and meditation, there are new models such as "A Vigil in the Presence of God" or "A Vigil for Peace and Justice".

Ample notes throughout explain the history of vigils and offer advice for planning small private and large public vigils.
