IN PRAISE OF DAILY LIFE
Carlos G. Valles
   
Jesus taught us to pray for our daily bread, and we carry out his divine injunction by living in practice of daily life day by day as it comes to us from his hands. A poets favourite prayer was “Oh dawn, cleanse me from all that stuck to me yesterday! Let today be my only today”. That is all that today can be. Examples, experiences, and considerations help us to realize in our lives what we clearly see in our minds. To live our lives day by day is the way to live them fully to God’s glory and to our own satisfaction. Our daily life becomes the daily bread of our prayer and our endeavour.

MEDITATIONS FROM THE WOODS
John Ponnore
   
The beautiful nature will teach you to pray. The poor, simple people who live a harmonious life with nature will teach you wisdom if you listen to them. The creator God continues to reveal His glory and wisdom through nature and ordinary people. It is “visible’ and “audible” to all those who are open and profound in their hearts with genuine love for Him. This is a revelation of wisdom hidden in the beauty of nature and variety of human experiences.

MY FRIENDS THE SENSES
Carlos G. Valles
   
For a long time we have been calling our prayer life “spiritual life”. This is justifiable, but it is also dangerous, as it tends to make us forget the fundamental role of our body, or organism, our senses play in the life of the spirit. Many prayers could be straightened up and many hardships could be softened if we would learn to integrate our “material” existence into our long and generous – and often frustrating - “spiritual” effort.

SCARECROW EXPERIENCES, Some Elements of a Spirituality for the Housebound Twilight Years. . . Especially!
Kevin Cronin, S.J.

The author’s intention is to help such life-experienced people find, or find again, that purpose.

THE COMPANY AND COMMUNION OF SAINTS
Luis M. Bermejo, SJ
   
All saints are loving and some saints are lovable. Which amounts to saying that some others are not. Some saints can be enormously attractive, simply fascinating—just as some others can be unappealing in the extreme, too remote from us, too supernatural. We want to see ourselves in the saints, we like to grasp firmly with our hands their sanctity of flesh and blood.

Something to make us smile with its wit and make us think with its message.
