There are times we may feel overwhelmed by the hectic pace of our lives; and when it comes time to reflect upon our day in meditation and prayer, we may be unable to concentrate. Finding inspiration and receiving grace each day is important to a prayerful life, and 2013: A Book of Grace-Filled Days provides a concise and structured way to listen to God's voice every day of the year.
2013: A Book of Grace-Filled Days is composed of daily meditations and Scripture readings that follow the lectionary readings of the church year, giving us a portal to God's loving, grace-filled presence in the midst of our busy lives. Each page lists the Scripture readings from the Mass for that day; a quotation from the readings; and a brief reflection to spur meditation, prayer, and selfexamination. The readings and meditations take note of major feast days, especially solemnities, holidays, and significant saints' commemorations. Each entry is short enough to be read in just a minute or two, but powerful enough to help us feel God's peace and loving presence throughout the day.
Prayer doesn't always have to take a lot of time for us to grow in faith daily--we can spend a few quiet moments with God and be united with our church community in prayer through the lectionary-based meditations in 2013: A Book of Grace-Filled Days.
