Footnotes and Headlines : a Play-praybook by Sister Corita With a Foreword by Daniel Berrigan

To play is to pray, and to pray is to play, and both are to rejoice in the goodly fellowship of man and god.

This is a book of games people pray, of games that can restore life.

This is not only "a new form of book," it is a new form of praying. It is praying through the words and phrases in headlines and ads and footnotes that surround us, and that reveal to us how man carries on the work that God started.

Each page is a ticket to the transfiguration of the ordinary, the everyday, the average; and the whole book is a celebration of the concrete and the immediate, of the taken-for-granted realities where alone we can meet ourselves, one another, and our god.

Footnotes And Headlines is for that whole new generation of people in every way of life, of every faith and of no known faith (and of every age), who are turned off by the very idea of a "prayer-book." This is a serious book for people who refuse to take themselves seriously.

How use the book? Simply use it. As Daniel Berrigan says: "Throw the rules away. Then celebrate the beautiful unpredictable fall of the letters like manna.

Then go to work (play) on the sentences and cards that follow. Bend them like taffy. Give the pages large doses of silence or noise, we don't care which."
