about

At the core of the Christian message lies a deep and fundamental commitment to issues of peace and social justice. At the core of a Christian's spiritual life lies a deep and fundamental commitment to a robust cycle of prayer and contemplation. Pray for Justice links the two in a masterful re-working of the Liturgy of Hours. A welcome resource for anyone who takes the intersection of prayer and social justice seriously.
Bro. Mark Elliott Newman, OC
Servant Leader Emeritus, Ecumenical Order of Charity

Lou Bordisso's new book is a helpful guide to accompany one's prayer life. Reading Lou's powerful quotes from saints and holy figures throughout history will no doubt inspire you, and his inclusion of a journal will challenge you to model your life on these great figures.
Ryan Hall from Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service

Lou Bordisso's short book takes the very traditional prayers of Catholic monastics and partners them with nuggets from the great saints on the issues of peace and justice, creates a morning and evening ritual that, when followed as he instructs, amounts to a mini thirty day retreat in the world. It offers a disciple, a routine, a ritual that can re-focus and dedicate our days, pointing them in the direction that we would have them go. Having witnessed the happiness and presence of mind that Lou brings to his ministry at The Gubbio Project and the joy that he exudes among our homeless guests, I can say that, if in this book he is sharing his daily prayer practice, we can't go wrong seeing how these prayer practices might help draw us closer to God and the people that we want to be in the world.
Laura Slattery, Executive Director of The Gubbio Project
