What People are saying about this

Rev., S.J.; Author of Paying Attention to God - William A. Barry
"The website Sacred Space has been helping millions to pray for some years. Now Ave Maria Press makes these very helpful and easily usable prayer-helps available in handsome and accessible form, including pocket-sized booklets for the Advent-Christmas and Lenten seasons. What a great service to God's people! I hope millions more will buy the books. God is being well served."
Rev., S.J.; Author of Between Heaven and Mirth - James Martin
"Inspired by one of the most successful spirituality websites around (and for good reason), Sacred Space offers readers short but profound meditations on the daily scriptures. Friendly, concise, and consistently thought provoking, these books are perfect for anyone who would like to pray more and be more connected to God, but may feel too busy to do so. In other words, everyone!"
Rev., S.J.; Author of Jesus: A Portrait - Gerald O'Collins
"I don't know any other guides to prayer that are so direct, profound, and effective. It's no wonder that right around the world they have proved extraordinarily helpful in leading busy people to stay in touch with the presence of God."
Rev., S.J.; Author of The God Who Won't Let Go - Peter van Breemen
"Sacred Space has provided countless people with a clear and concise resource to pray alone—any time and anywhere—and yet consciously united with numerous others worldwide. This timely unassuming aid to daily prayer is a gem."

The passages are of manageable length. I can never get through the entire "Readings for the Day." You are encouraged to reflect meditatively on Scripture, using imaginative exercises. This is a fine and valuable book.
