Be Gentle, Be Faithful: Daily Meditations for Busy Christiansby James Stephen Behrens, Ocso James Stephen Behrens, Patrice J. Tuohy (Editor)
A wonderful page-a-day book for every day of every year! Acclaimed as an author who �looked at life�s complications simply, [and] squeezed magic out of ordinary days,� Behrens brings his special power of insight to everyday life. From his vantage point in a monastery, he offers 366 daily reflections-each illuminating the sacred amid the ordinary. A brief scripture quotation linked to each daily meditation provides additional food for thought.

I find that beginning each day with Fr. Behrens' meditations lifts my spirits and helps me see the humor, joy, and love of God in seemingly ordinary things in my life. His personal experiences and reflections shine a fresh light on the Scripture passage he includes with each meditation. The glimpses he offers of the daily lives of himself and his fellow monks demystify holiness and help me to pursue it in my own life. Thanks for the lift, Fr.Behrens!
AS A BUSY PARISH PRIEST, I HAVE FOUND THIS BOOK TO BE AN IVALUABLE RESOURCE FOR PRAYER AND MEDITATION. THE THOUHGTS EXPRESSED ARE VERY DOWN TO EARTH AND PRACTICAL.THIS IS A 'MUST HAVE' FOR THE BUSY CHRISTIAN WHATEVER ONE'S VOCATION.
I find this book of daily meditations heartwarming in way that touches me deeply. I feel like I am right there with the author going through the everyday activity at the Trappist monastery,and drawn closer to God with every reading. I appreciate the author's gift of conveying his religious message in a simplistic way.
