Reviews - What do customers think about Sacred Space: The Prayer Book 2008?

Sacred Space 2008  Jan 7, 2008
I have found Sacred Space a good resource for my daily prayer and meditation. The format at the beginning of each week gives a simple and inspiring framework for prayer. The questions following the daily scripture reading are unique and helpful.
An Excellent Guide For Prayer  Dec 6, 2007
The website for Sacred Space has a steady worldwide following. Started by Alan McGuckian and Peter Scally, two Irish Jesuits, the site offers prayer suggestions based on the daily Mass scriptures used in the Catholic Church and the basic methods of Ignatian prayer. The site also offers seasonal retreats and newsletters to better help people pray. People can sign up to receive newsletters, participate in online retreats, and share feedback. People can also log on to use the daily prayers, but for those of us who do not like sitting at a computer to pray, there is a companion volume: SACRED SPACE THE PRAYER VOLUME 2008.

The book is set up in an easy to use format. It follows the liturgical calendar and begins with an overall weekly reflection. For each week there are reflection questions that vary from week to week to help the person focus on scripture and God's movement in his/her life. There are excerpts from the daily readings or psalms and accompanied by a few other reflection questions. The method is straightforward and easy to use. First the person reminds him/herself that prayer is being in the presence of God and clears the mind. Second, the person asks for God's help in the time of prayer, remembering that while prayer is a free act, it is only fruitful with God's help. Third, we bring ourselves to prayer, bringing our thoughts, feelings, moods, etc. to prayer and sharing them with God. The fourth step involves reading the scripture for the day, the fifth is reflection and conversation with God about the scripture. The prayer ends with the sixth and final step, praising and thanking God.

SACRED SPACE is almost the perfect guide for personal prayer. Since it uses the daily Mass scripture readings from the Roman Catholic lectionary, it is prayer that unites members of the Church throughout the world. It is easy to use so a person beginning a prayer routine will not be intimidated yet since it is based on God's word through the scriptures, it is both simple and sophisticated. It is a method that can be done in a rather short period of time yet can easily be extended to longer periods. It's also a method that can be used at any time of the day. It could easily be something that begins the day (probably the ideal way to use the book), be a refresher for midday, or a good way to conclude the day.

P.S.: For people who have to prepare a homily for daily Mass and run out of ideas, the reflection questions in the book can be a wonderful way to sound new and fresh, and since it stems from prayer and reflection, it is what a homily is supposed to be.
Sacred Space: The Prayer Book 2008  Nov 15, 2007
Sacred Space: The Prayer Book 2008. Excellent for the busy Christian who wants to start the day with a reflection on the scriptures. Reflection questions each day are an added bonus.
I have been using this product for three years, and give it as a gift to friends.
Sacred Space....daily meditations  Nov 6, 2007
Sacred Space, a hard copy, of the web site created by the Irish Jesuits is an invaluable prayer companion resources for daily meditation. I use book almost everyday and take it with me when I go on trip. The prayer methodology follows the traditions of the St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus. I would recommend it highly. R.W. Vancouver, Canada.
Ideal for Individuals and Groups  Oct 22, 2007
The Sacred Space Prayer Book is a creation of the Jesuit Communication Centre in Ireland, developers of Like the web site, the book offers brief meditations on scripture relevant to life in the 21st century. The weekly sections begin with something to think about and pray about each day. Often the think-about section focuses on remaining faithful in today's world. For example, we examine the culture of the individual against the strong sense of community in the early Church. And we are urged to reject the philosophy of the marketplace by "building a personal spam filter into our eyes and ears, a half-automatic delete key to use on whatever distracts (us) from the Lord."

Facing the weekly think-about page is a six-step process expressed as prayer-poems. In the first three steps, unique for each week, we invite God into our hearts; ask for the grace to be open to God's word; and acknowledge our current concerns, thoughts, and emotions. The fourth step takes us into the daily passages, selected from the lectionary readings, and brief reflections. Finally, we engage Jesus in a conversation about our experience and conclude by praying the Doxology.

This 2008 prayer book, which begins with the First Sunday of Advent, 2007, is ideal for individuals and groups wishing to find a sacred space within their existing lives. Ideas for slowing down and finding time are provided in a brief how-to section of the introduction and integrated into the daily reflections.
