The Story behind the Book of Life...
Click here to submit a name for the Book of Life
|In the 1980s, Sister Mary Agnes, a Cloistered Carmelite nun, created the world’s first interfaith and international web based prayer network for persons in serious need. Each time a name was submitted, she connected with a variety of healing sites and communities of prayer around the world. Mary Agnes was grateful for the remarkable reports regarding the relief of spiritual suffering. In 1997, Sister died and willed her project to the Groves as they established the Sacred Art of Living Center. The “Book of Life” now resides at SALC's St. Raphael Chapel and has received more than forty thousand requests from around the world.|
We invite you to use the Book of Life as a way or remembering persons and special needs. You can include the names of the living or deceased. Soon, SALC will be publishing another book with the remarkable testimonies of persons who attribute healing or peace through the Book of Life. We invite you to both use the Book of Life and to submit your stories as well.
