Overview

This simple little book from a great spiritual giant attends to what we human beings are most inclined to forget, preparing for and engaging in prayer. It is an examination of what we ourselves must bring to the discipline of prayer–whatever form it takes–in order to make prayer authentic and real, a deep and profound part of our lives.

None of the brief reflections in this book are ever finished, ever closed, ever fully resolved. They are all ongoing steps along the way, steps we retrace over and over again as we do all the other parts of life, until they become the very breath we breathe, the vision and energy of our souls.

This is great spiritual reading for every person who longs for prayer to be the the very breath of his or her soul.

Meet the Author

Joan Chittister, OSB, is one of the country’s key visionary voices and spiritual leaders. A Benedictine Sister of Erie, PA, Sister Joan is an international lecturer on behalf of peace, human rights, women’s issues, justice, and contemporary culture. She is an award-winning author of 40 books and writes a weekly web column, “From Where I Stand,” for the National Catholic Reporter.

Currently she serves as co-chair of the Global Peace Initiative of Women, a partner organization of the U.N., facilitating a worldwide network of women peace builders. She is also co-chair of the Network of Spiritual Progressives with Rabbi Michael Lerner and Cornel West.

Sister Joan appeared with the Dali Lama in 2007 at the First Emory (University) Summit of Religion, Conflict and Peacebuilding and at the conference, “Seeds of Compassion,” in 2008. In April 2005, her commentary from Rome on the month-long papal events was aired on CNN, the BBC and all national US media networks. On Easter Sunday 2006, she was a guest on “Meet the Press with Tim Russert” and in 2004, she was a guest on “NOW with Bill Moyers.”

For twelve years Sister Joan was a (founding) member of the International Committee for the Peace Council, an interfaith group of world leaders working for peace.

Her books include Welcome to the Wisdom of the World, a First Place Award winner from the Catholic Press Association, and The Gift of Years: Growing Older Gracefully, a consistent best seller since its release in 2008.

Joan has held positions of religious leadership among women in the Catholic Church for over 20 years, including serving as prioress of her Benedictine community. She holds a doctorate from Penn State University, was an elected-fellow of St. Edmund’s College, Cambridge University, and is the founder and director of Benetvision: a resource and research center for contemporary spirituality located in Erie.
