31 Days of Jesus Sayings is a collection of 180 fragments attributed to Jesus of Nazareth in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, that one former parish priest still finds helpful in praying while walking in the woods or on a treadmill or other torture device or driving here and there or rocking in a chair like a hungry old bear. They can be meditated on as if a vitamin, choosing one from five or so to breathe with through the day, as a way to meet Jesus, on the search for a healing word of consolation or a challenge from the Savior, as a doorway into the gospel context of a saying that intrigues, in the ongoing search for the gospel account or parable that is "the gospel within the gospel" for a particular Christian, with extra time on one's hands a way to sit with those "hard" sayings of Jesus, as a way to begin a dialogue with the Risen Christ, a way to admit the desire to be a student-disciple of the Master Teacher, or looking to listen in patient anticipation of being surprised by God. This pocket edition is one of the 8 chapters of A Jesus Breviary. Visit idjc.org.
