Sacred Space

2013 BooksacredspaceThis is the time of year to order the next edition of Sacred Space РThe Jesuit Prayer Book.  They issue a new edition each year with an entry for everyday which includes a meditation, Bible reading and notes. It runs from the first day of Advent each year.

It is one book I can recommend before I even see it. A well tried format that works for me. In the 2013 version today’s meditation, for example asks the reader to think about whether there can be any communication between the living and those who have died. Yesterday, the reading was the beautiful part of Matthew’s gospel where Jesus says, “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest.”¬†

That is a wonderful thought in these times when there are wars, insurgencies, violence and all manner of dreadful things happening.
