God Lives and Dwells Among Us Dec 12, 2002
_A Monastic Year_, Brother Victor's previous book of seasonal, liturgical, and spiritual meditations, hinted at the Benedictine monk's ability to capture the fleeting moments of a day with its month-by-month account of life in the monastery. _Blessings of the Daily_ is a natural continuation, breaking the year up into 365 different entries on topics ranging from Charles de Foucauld to the journey of Lent to the life of Saint Joseph the Worker. As in all of Brother Victor's work, the rhythmic patterns of the seasons flow throughout the text, grounding the reader in the holistic cycles of the year. Images of birth, death, and rebirth chronically appear, making for a beautifully honest portrait of a life informed equal parts by spirit and matter. In all, highly recommended for anyone seeking to glimpse God in the simplicity of daily living.
