Stirring Slumbering Souls – Book Review

Stirring Slumbering Souls Stirring Slumbering Souls is a compilation of 250 quotes, selectively chosen by Michael Seagriff, to promote Eucharistic Adoration of Jesus Christ, in the Most Blessed Sacrament. In this stirring book, Seagriff holds nothing back! The stellar quotes selected, come from the giants of the Saints. We read the thoughts of such greats as Catherine of Siena, John Chrysostom, Maria Faustina Kowalska, Francis de Sales, Alphonsus di Liguori, Popes John XXIII and John Paul II. Let’s not leave out Saints Maximilian Kolbe, Catherine Laboure, Margaret Mary Alacoque, Padre Pio, Bishop Fulton Sheen, Teresa of Avila and John Vianney, along with many others.

Seagriff doesn’t stop there! He quotes some gems from holy people living today. Lending their voices are Pope Benedict XVI, Peter Kreeft, and Bishop James Conley, to name a few.

The list is exhaustive, and the quality of quotes is truly inspirational. Seagriff compiled a list, that when read together in one book, tell us one thing. Whether from a fourth century Saint, or a present-day theologian, these quotes remind us that God deserves our attention! And what better way to give Him that attention, than via Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

Spend Time with Jesus

During that peaceful time in Church, with Jesus exposed in the monstrance, we meet Him face to face. He waits there for us to visit. Jesus wants to hear our troubles, our thanksgivings, our petitions. He wants to look at us, as we look at Him! One can’t help but desire to spend time with Jesus, in Adoration, after reading Stirring Slumbering Souls.

Seagriff did an exceptional job at bringing together all the voices, that we need to hear. Voices that sing the same song: Spend time with Jesus now, in faith. If you can’t find the time, or the desire, to spend time with Jesus now, then why should Jesus think that you would want to spend eternity with him, later?
