Renowned Catholic writers share their distinct and deeply moving interpretations of the seven sacraments
"Given Catholicism's ancient aesthetic splendor, it's not surprising that many believing artists are Catholics . . . The seven sacraments of the Catholic church-Baptism, Reconciliation, Eucharist, Confirmation, Marriage, Anointing of the Sick, and Holy Orders-make visible momentarily and through symbol the mysterious meeting of the human and the divine." (from the Introduction by Thomas Grady and Paula Huston)
A distinctly integral feature of Catholic life, the seven holy sacraments play an enormously influential role in the lives of many writers who practice the Catholic faith. Signatures of Grace is a remarkable collection of essays inspired by the sacraments, showcasing several of the finest Catholic writers of our time-including Mary Gordon, Ron Hansen, Patricia Hampl, and Andre Dubus-who have in common their personal commitments to the Catholic faith. Each essay, lyrically written and thought-provoking on its own, offers an individual writer's fresh perspective about the influence of Catholicism on his or her work. Signatures of Grace describes the profound mysteries of sacramental life and is a unique contribution to literature in this genre.
