Immediately following his return from a ten-day student service project in Mexico in January 1998, Fr. Brown was diagnosed with colon cancer. He turned to the Book of Psalms as a source of strength throughout his illness and recovery. This book is the fruit of that experience.
A compilation of Psalms, meditations, rare and original prayers, and commentaries, Psalms and Comassions is dedicated to all who are experiencing pain and suffering of any kind, and to all who care for them.
