Item Description...
This spiritual memoir draws on Hannon's wealth of experience, his family life, childhood and professional life as a high school teacher to show how God is present in every aspect of our lives, how the seemingly mundane events in our lives can reveal the presence of God. For example, the simple act of sitting on a bench at dawn in the middle of San Francisco becomes a spiritual wakening and a morning prayer of praise for an entire city. This collection of poignant, heartbreaking and hilarious short stories is organized around the Liturgy of the Hours.

Publishers Description
Seldom does a spiritual memoir make as provocative an impression as Patrick Hannon's remarkable first book, Running into the Arms of God. Combining the storytelling skills of a John Shea or Andrew Greeley with the spiritual sensitivity of a Joyce Rupp, Ronald Rohlheiser or Richard Rohr, Hannon uses the liturgical hours of the monastic day as a frame on which to hang his very powerful stories of prayer.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Pure literary treasure  Dec 22, 2007
This book is an easy read with a common down -to- earth simplicity that strikes at the very root of your heart. The authors Irish wit and love of his fellow man (in whatever background they may be from) is so very apparent that it will make you think twice before judging another human being. The stories are short, diverse and sweet. This is a must read for anyone that needs a lift and a different perspective on the every day comings and goings of life. This little book of gems left such an impression on me that I ordered 3 more copies of it and sent them for Christmas presents. Thank you Patrick Hannon for your humor and wit and keep on writing!!
Refreshingly spiritual and inspirational  Jun 21, 2007
Father Pat has a unique way of allowing the reader to experience the love of God in everyday, human lives. I laughed, I cried, I marveled, I prayed during my reading of this book. Father Pat also allows us insight into how to accept all of God's beings with dignity, humor and grace, no matter how challenging the situation. I liked how each story was in itself an encounter with God's mercy and love. This book is worth several reads!!
Amazing, wonderful book!  Oct 10, 2006
I picked up this book from my local library mainly because Fr. Hannon is the Parochial Vicar at my parish. I was interested in his writing, as I absolutely love going to Mass to hear his homily every Sunday--he is an extremely gifted priest. This book is fantastic, and Fr. Pat is truly a man with a tremendous spirit...and a very talented writer. I read the library copy and quickly bought a is definately a book you will want to read again and again.
Anyone who likes a good story should like this book. It is a delightful and enlightening work that I have been recommending to my friends. Patrick Hannon, a young Holy Cross priest, generously shares with us tales of his family and his life. They are warm and engaging stories in themselves and Hannon is a great storyteller. And in his faith he reveals to us another dimension of reality -- that of prayer which is laced through the fabric of ordinary life, usually not recognized or recognizable as prayer until a book like this points it out. You will enjoy the book, you will want to pass it on.
An Absolute Delight  Mar 23, 2006
You don't normally think of spirituality as a "fun read" but this small book can put a whole new spin on the concept of relating to God and when is it, exactly, that we are praying. It is engaging, poignant, thought-provoking (in a positive, non-troubling way) and conveys an optimism about how to live and experience life. I recommend this book to everyone who believes that life has a larger purpose --- if you take its meaning to heart it can make every day of your life a fair bit richer. I received this book as a Christmas present and, in turn, have now given it out as a gift to many of my closest friends and family members --- getting unanimously positive comments in return. This one is really worth it.
