Item Description...
Overview
Fans of Brother Victor's cookbooks-and anyone who aspires to live a simpler life-will find sustenance for the soul in this book of year-round meditations. Following the cycle of the seasons and the cycle of the Church year, Brother Victor offers a brief meditation for each day of the year. Each meditation begins with a quote from Scripture or a relevant author followed by a reflection that leads readers to find the spiritual in the fabric of their daily lives. Interspersed with topics such as sheep shearing and making pumpkin jam is advice on keeping Advent holy, meditations on humility and the beatitudes, and appreciations of the saints. The book is illustrated with 12 woodcuts, one for each month of the year. By taking time out of their busy day-to-day lives to make Blessings of the Daily a part of their prayer routine, readers will be inspired to live in greater harmony with the universe. Author Michael Korda describes his neighbor Brother Victor in his book Country Matters this way: "Brother Victor, wearing an apron over his robe and a large straw hat of the kind worn by Impressionist painters, was seated at a folding picnic table under a beach umbrella, reading a small book. His demeanor was affable. He did not make any attempt to sell his wares, which included plastic containers of the tapenade I had enjoyed so much, homemade aioli, aluminum-foil plates of tomatoes Provenal ready for reheating, and tiny pots of herbs. When he founded the monastery, his homemade specialities were of interest only to those who came there to make a retreat. Now, he said...there was a greater demand for the monastery's wares-greater than he could meet." He indeed is a unique guide for a meditative journey.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
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.
