Overview

With over 25,000 copies sold of the hardcover version, this paperback edition of Macrina Wiederkehr's bestselling book invites readers to learn how to pray the hours through the practice of consciously pausing at the seven sacred moments of each day, making their daily passage through time a more sacred pilgrimage.

Using scripture, poetry, reflections, personal stories, and quotes from a rich array of spiritual teachers for many religions, Wiederkehr helps readers become more attuned to living in the present moment and develop a kindred spirit with the rich tradition of the sacred hours. Seven Sacred Pauses is a wonderful gift to those who seek to find balance in their busy days and to bring the practice of the Divine Hours home to their own hearts.

"You are holding in your hands not only a book of readings and instruction for the journey, but one monastic's heart of love held out to a searching world." —Paula D'Arcy, Author of Gift of the Red Bird (from the foreword)

"'Time is money, and money is scarce.' All who are driven by this double misconception get squeezed into a frantic rat race. Macrina Wiederkehr shows you a way out." —David Steindl-Rast, O.S.B., Author of The Music of Silence

"This terrific book brings the ancient prayer of the Church into modern focus as the author invites the readers to mark the moments of the day with prayer. [Wiederkehr] offers inspiration galore to feed the soul in simple, yet profound everyday—hourly—ways." —Religion Teacher's Journal

"A wonderful resource for those who routinely pray the hours, whether communally or privately. It offers an effective antidote to the monotony and distraction that can imperceptibly drain daily prayer of life and meaning. Reading this book, one will awaken to the deeper symbolic dimensions of each hour and thereby be able to redirect one's energy towards a fuller, faith-filled, cosmic participation." —Cistercian Studies Quarterly

"This inspiring devotional resource will serve as a catalyst to spur your own practice of being present and paying attention to the sacred rhythms of the day." —Spirituality & Practice

    Pausing for prayer

    Macrina Wiederkehr has given me a wonderful tool to put regular prayer into my life on a daily basis. I don't read everything everyday, but spending some time with this book as I journey through the day is very helpful for keeping me in a mindful mode. I expecially like the Psalm references, as they are a great point of meditation for me.

    Really enjoyed

    The kind of book I will return to frequently to help me focus on the Lord throughout the day, and live in the present moment aware of His presence.
