Sutera, Judith OSB
For over 1500 years, religious and laity have looked to St. Benedict, the patriarch of Western monasticism, for spiritual wisdom. Part of that wisdom is a daily period of sacred reading (lectio divina), in which a person reflects on a passage of Scripture and lets its wisdom speak to the heart.
This book provides scripture readings for the Advent and Christmas seasons, and a daily selection from St. Benedict's own cherished writings. Each daily meditation concludes with a prayer and a suggestion for personal action as an integral part of developing a deeper relationship with God. Use this book as your spiritual practice for Advent to help build your anticipation of the birth and wonder of the great gift of the Christ child.
