Book Review: Sacred Space: The Prayer Book 2015

Sacred Space: The Prayer Book 2015

by the Irish Jesuits
Notre Dame: Ave Maria Press, 2015

The Sacred Space website began in 1999, sharing prayers from the Irish Jesuits on a daily basis. In 2004, the prayers began to be available in print as well. Beginning with the start of the liturgical year (November 30th this year), there is a scripture reading and short reflection for each day. In addition, there is a reflection for the start of each week - an overriding topic to "think and pray about."

The Jesuits "invite you to make a sacred space in your day and spend ten minutes praying, wherever you are." They encourage us to "remember that God is everywhere, all around us, constantly reaching out to us, and interested in meeting us, even in the most unlikely situations. When we know this, and with a bit of practice, we can pray anywhere."

Sacred Space is an easy-to-use prayer companion, perfect for busy people searching for an opportunity for spiritual growth and reflection.
