Do You Love Me? is a response by the Bishops of England and Wales to many requests for a handbook on Christian spirituality. This is a pastoral document offering a practical guide to personal and shared prayer. It is not an exhaustive study of that rich and varied topic. Many of the great saints have left their own Testament and witness to the following of Jesus Christ. Each of these has its own validity and have stood the test of time.

The texts seek to provide a prayerful answer to the question posed by Jesus in the twenty first chapter of St John’s Gospel, “Do you love me?”, offering some aspects from the Catholic tradition in a reflective manner. All are invited to use it in furthering their relationship with the Lord in ways rooted in Catholic tradition.

It is written in an informal and approachable style, with attractive illustrations.

Do You Love me is a Pastoral document prepared by the Bishops’ Conference Spirituality Committee.

This short book is an excellent resource for exploring our Christian spirituality. It can be used either in a group or as an individual. It is based on the last chapter of St Johns Gospel which is divided into six sections and there are useful suggestions on how to reflect, catechesis and prayers with each section. I personally found the suggested Psalms very helpful - for example Section 1 Searching is linked to Psalm 42 'As a deer longs for flowing streams so my soul longs for you, O God.' The authors led by Bishop Brian Noble have achieved just the right tone and content. It will prove invaluable in many settings. I thoroughly recommend it.
