It’s that time of year—when our new fall books are coming out. Loyola Press is a Jesuit ministry, and we’re quite choosy about the books we publish. So by the time I have books to talk about, I have likely edited them and I believe they can help in the great mercy of healing this world.
At times we’re overwhelmed by life’s hectic pace. When it’s time for meditation and prayer, we’re too tired or distracted to concentrate. A Book of Grace-Filled Days offers an approach to Scripture and personal meditation that opens up a window of grace every day of the year.
- Lectionary-based Scripture readings are matched with daily meditations.
- Page-a-day calendar format begins with Advent 2014 and runs through the end of calendar year 2015.
- Notes major feast days, solemnities, and holidays.
Prayer doesn’t always have to take a lot of time—we can spend a few quiet moments with God and be united with our church community in prayer through the lectionary-based meditations.
