Ostriches, Dung Beetles, and Other Spiritual Masters




The African landscape and its inhabitants become the catechists in this wonderful collection of stories, perfect for individual or group reflection. As Maryknoll Sister Janice McLaughlin tells us about the wildlife of Africa, she also teaches us about ourselves and what we’re capable of-how from the elephant we can learn the meaning of community or from the hippopotamus humility and self-acceptance. Delightful sketches of African wildlife by two African artists accompany the reflections, along with quotes from scripture and ways to apply the wisdom of the wild to our own lives.
