Lawrence Duffany, a Third Order Carmelite with nearly twenty years in the field of Catholic education, has completed his new book, “Chalk It Up to Mystery: Reflections on the Rosary for the Catholic School Educator”: a valuable resource for the contemplative Catholic school teacher or administrator.

Duffany draws on his lifetime of experience in evangelization and catechesis to reach out to his colleagues through this book using religious imagination. It is his goal that “a teacher will find a companion on the journey, hope, understanding, and perhaps a little inspiration” within these pages.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Lawrence Duffany’s spiritual insights challenge those involved in Catholic education to slow down and more deeply consider the relationship of the mysteries of the rosary to the ministry of Catholic education.

He calls educators to reflection and spiritual enlivenment with a declaration of the importance of the rosary and of a daily commitment to prayer. Duffany promotes the value and benefits of the gentle, repetitive rhythm of the prayers comparing them with the loving, gentle rocking of a mother and child.

The detailed passages begin with a Gospel reading and include a brief reflection followed by pointed questions that ask the educator-reader to evaluate their own application of the teachings for their professional, personal, and ministerial growth. Sufficient space is provided for personal journaling following these questions.

Readers who wish to experience this inspirational work can purchase “Chalk It Up to Mystery: Reflections on the Rosary for the Catholic School Educator” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
