Book Overview

Ritual is a powerful binding force. From the bedtime routines that toddlers insist upon to the comic routines that leave outsiders puzzled, all groups, including families, shape their identities by the rites they observe. And, in the process, they discover that something holy lies at the heart of their relationships. Franciscan Father Rock Travnikar wants families and groups to discover that holiness and to claim a deeper identity as God's people...

Great Family Tradition

Our priest gave my mother and the rest of the staff at our church this book with a blessing cup as a Christmas gift several years ago. We have used it ever since, and have bought it as a gift for other family members and friends. Great gift idea for a young married couple begining their life together.

Blessing Cup

I really like this book. It has been a wonderful spiritual tool for my family. The way it ties scripture and prayer to different events in our lives helps us see God more fully. It is a comfortable way to pray together and to bring our cares to God as a family. I have already purchased this book to give to others.

A family tradition

Having grown up using prayers from this book to start and bless important meals, I now pass the book on to friends. The book, coupled with a chalice to pass following the prayer selected, makes a great wedding or other celebratory gift. There are prayer rituals for practically every significant life event you can think of. Recently my husband and I reflected on the prayer in times of natural disaster following the Katrina hurricane. It's a great family tradition to use the Blessing Cup prayers.

An Important Resource for our Family

I am part of a large family with many of us attending different Christian churches. We have begun a tradition of offering a cup of blessing (Kiddush, from the Passover Meal) when we get together for a family event. This tradition allows to all "commune" together, uniting us in Christian love. The Blessing Cup is a perfect source of prayers for many occasions. I would recommend this tradition and the book to all families!

Great for families.

We've used these prayers along with our blessing cup for years. Highly recommend it! When we switched to using the blessing cup, our kids thought we had literally lost our minds. Now, it is a cherished tradition in our home
