Item Description...
Now in its third year, the 2007 edition of Sacred Space: The Prayer Book offers a practical, portable way to pray throughout the year.

Sacred Space: The Prayer Book 2007 is a prayer guide inspired by the very popular, successful, interactive website, Both the book and the site offer a way to reflect and pray each day of the liturgical year; both present a time to quietly connect with God and a space to be spiritually nourished, healed, challenged, and transformed. Inaugurated in 1999 by Alan McGuckian, S.J., and Peter Scally, S.J., of the Jesuit Communication Centre in Ireland, the site has logged over seventeen million visits. Each week, Sacred Space presents readers with a new spiritually based theme. The Six Stages of Prayer guide readers in reflecting upon the Weekly Theme.

A great resource arrives in the nick of time!  Feb 14, 2007
"Sacred Space: The Prayer Book 2007" is tied to the spiritual leadership coming from a group of Irish Jesuits. The book is wonderful and the seller got it to me in the time promised.
Great prayer/scripture boook  Feb 10, 2007
This is the second year I buy this book. It has a great prayer format and incorporates scripture into the same. I have also purchased it for my nephew as a confirmation present; it is a great book for teaching the discipline of prayer. I keep mine in the car, which is my quiet and sacred space. This book will help you take a moment to prayer anywhere at any time. It is flexible enough to incorporate your own form of prayer but structured enough to get you in the mindset and considering different spiritual themes. If you fall asleep during prayer, get distracted or just plain don't pray this book will help, the commitment is about five minutes but the feeling lasts all day.
A Great Prayer Guide  Feb 3, 2007
[...] is an excellent resource for Catholic prayer and spirituality. Started by Alan McGuckian and Peter Scally, two Irish Jesuits, the site offers prayer suggestions based on the daily Mass scriptures used in the Catholic Church and the basic methods of Ignatian prayer. The site also offers seasonal retreats and newsletters to better help people pray. People can sign up to receive newsletters, participate in online retreats, and share feedback. People can also log on to use the daily prayers, but for those of us who do not like sitting at a computer to pray, there is a companion volume: SACRED SPACE THE PRAYER VOLUME 2007.

The book is set up in an easy to use format. It follows the liturgical calendar and begins with a monthly reflection. For each week there are reflection questions that vary from week to week to help the person focus on scripture and God's movement in his/her life. The method is straightforward and easy to use. First the person reminds him/herself that prayer is being in the presence of God and clears the mind. Second, the person asks for God's help in the time of prayer, remembering that while prayer is a free act, it is only fruitful with God's help. Third, we bring ourselves to prayer, bringing our thoughts, feelings, moods, etc. to prayer and sharing them with God. The fourth step involves reading the scripture for the day, the fifth is reflection and conversation with God about the scripture. The prayer ends with the sixth and final step, praising and thanking God.

SACRED SPACE is almost the perfect guide for personal prayer. Since it uses the daily Mass gospels, it is prayer that unites members of the Church throughout the world (in general the same readings are used throughout the world but on occasion there will be readings for feast celebrated in Ireland such as St. Brigid's Day on Feb 1st). It is easy to use so a person beginning a prayer routine will not be intimidated yet since it is based on God's word through the scriptures, it is both simple and sophisticated. It is a method that can be done in a rather short period of time yet can easily be extended to longer periods. It's also a method that can be used at any time of the day. It could easily be something that begins the day (probably the ideal way to use the book), be a refresher for midday, or a good way to conclude the day.

P.S.: For people who have to prepare a homily for daily Mass and run out of ideas, the reflection questions in the book can be a wonderful way to sound new and fresh, and since it stems from prayer and reflection, it is what a homily is supposed to be.
Sacred Space truly facilitates prayer and reflection.   Jan 10, 2007
This is a wonderful way to draw youself into a spirit of prayer and reflection. There is a scripture reading for each day and then some comments or questions that can be pondered that will, hopefully, bring you into a closer relationship with God through a better understanding of Jesus Christ.
A deeply reverent aid to setting aside a little time each day to think about God.  Dec 9, 2006
Inspired by the successful interactive website [...], created in 1999 by Alan McGuckian, S.J. and Peter Scally, S.J. of the Jesuit Communication Centre in Ireland, Sacred Space: The Prayer Book 2007 is a useful tool to aid Christians in daily prayer. For each day of December 2006 through November 2007, Sacred Space presents a scriptural passage followed by points of inspiration to contemplate when considering the passage's relevance in daily life. Weekly themes are also present, and six stages of prayer are outlined for the theme of each week. For example, the passage for Thursday Aug 2 is Psalm 83(84) "My heart and my soul ring out their joy to God, the living God. They are happy whose strength is in you. They walk with ever growing strength." One of the points for that day's contemplation is, "Is my strength in the Lord? Or is it invested in these mortal limbs, this limited mind of mine?" A deeply reverent aid to setting aside a little time each day to think about God.
