Fr Hedwig Lewis,
With a jubilant heart I thank you for your latest book “With Jubilant
Hearts”. The Parish has already used it for the feast of St Francis Xavier
and I feel confident that there will be many an occasion during the Jubilee
Year where it will come of very good use.

Excerpts from book-reviews:
with the conventional prayers of the three saints, there are a number of
adapted prayers and life illustrations that add beauty to this book. The
general pattern of prayer followed in the book is: invocations, insight from
the life of the saint, reflections, questions, intercessions and concluding
prayers. Though the prayers are arranged in an order, they give room for
spontaneous prayers and creativity in order to make better use of the book on
different occasions. There are also theme-based community
prayer-services. Treasured prayers like Anima Christi, Take and
Receive and Lead Kindly Light are samples that will continue to
feed the devotion of readers.
book may be of help to not only the Jesuit communities but also to all
people who engage themselves in bringing out the best in others. It can offer
inspiration for religious leaders, preachers, teachers, parents and friends.
As the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius Loyola turned millions of
people to God, so also in its own way With Jubilant Hearts can help
people come close to God. Hedwig Lewis has mined the Jesuit sources for
prayers, reflections, anecdotes, illustrations and information and this brings
out the true spirit of these three saints. We are grateful to him.
Justin Ekka, SJ, Vidyajyoti Journal of
Theological Reflection, May 2006
This is a new book released in
connection with the Jubilee year in the Society of Jesus. The Society of Jesus
celebrates three Jubilees during the year 2006: the fifth centenary of the
birth of St Francis Xavier [7 April 1506] and of Bld Peter Faber [13 August
1506], and the 450th death anniversary of St Ignatius Loyola [31 July 1556].
With Jubilant Hearts catures the charisms of the three 'Founding Father'. It
vibrates with a spirit of joy, of 'jubilation', of spiritual celebration. It
is a 'resources book' containing a variety of informational and inspirational
material that can be put to creative use at the personal and community levels.
