The New Wine of Dominican Spirituality: A Drink Called Happiness
If you have not picked up this book by Irish Dominican, Fr. Paul Murray OP, I would highly suggest it! Many friars have said it is probably one of the best contemporary books written on the topic. We are reading it in the refectory these days here at the Dominican House of Studies.
I am preparing to give a talk at St. Leo's Parish in Fairfax, Virginia and I will be using it. Fr. Paul taught me at the University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) in Rome and helped direct my thesis on St. Catherine of Siena.
By the way, there are a number of great books written by Dominicans that we would recommend. Many of them are linked to our website, DominicanFriars.org. Check them out and say a prayer that my talk goes well on Monday night!
Also, there are two more books recently written by Fr. Murray. I hear they are excellent, though they are not in our friars bookshop yet, they are available on Amazon.com. I have linked them here below.
