by Sofia Cavalletti and Patricia Coulter
One of the many gifts of Sofia Cavalletti to the church is her clear eyed theological grasp of the sources of our faith. She once said that she was led to this essentiality by the children, and that she herself was a very complicated person. This gift of essentiality is offered in Drinking from the Sources’ careful translation and selection of Sofia Cavalletti’s meditations on Scripture and liturgy. The foundation of our faith (and of CGS), Sofia frequently said, is Scripture and liturgy. This book explores how they are related to each other, how we are formed by them, and the wealth of the Eucharistic Prayers. In times such as these, when our attachment to the church may be shaken, to be rerooted in the sources of our faith is a gift indeed.
