Publishers Description In this masterpiece of simplicity, Macrina Wiederkehr offers a series of meditations to bring us closer to a "God for all seasons," revised and expanded into this new edition. Designed for daily use as well as for retreats, Seasons of Your Heart is an eloquent and lyrical invitation to journey through the spiritual seasons of wonder, hope, love, mystery, and faith. Macrina Weiderkehr shares her "seasonal struggle with God" and encourages us to reconize those same peaks and valleys in our own spiritual life. Using biblical passages, poetry, and excerpts from her journal, Wiederkehr provides meditative ideas and prayers as "postures" for realizing and approaching the holy in our daily lives. These reflections and prayers, then, have grown out of a daily listening to God in the changing seasons of my spiritual life, "writes the author. "These reflections have grown out of my conviction that our God is not some Almighty Being beyond us, but a Mystery within."

Seasons of Your Heart Feb 4, 2000
This book touches your heart. it's excellent because it's spiritual but down to earth where the normal human dwells. "Take off your shoes; you are on hallowed ground."
The name of this book is most appropriate! Jan 17, 1999
This book touches many subjects of the heart, and every subject has scripture. I've had heartbreaks in my life, and one line in this book touched me deeply: "When celebration is the only thing that makes sense, we have begun to understand the sacredness of life and death." Yes! That is where I am right now! Celebrating the Goodness of God, and thanking Him for people like Macrina Wiederkehr! I have all her books, and recently had the opportunity to meet Sr. Macrina and attend a retreat day in OKC. She has a way of awakening hearts. Thank you!
