Meditations  Jan 31, 2010
I purchased this book to assist me in my daily meditations, and I have used it now for nearly a month. Each meditation is concise and clear, with a challenge question at the end of each meditation and room on which to make notes. As I continue my growth in Franciscan spirituality, this book has been most helpful.
Brilliant  Aug 9, 2009

Today I will...  May 15, 2009
This new book of meditations from award winning author Murray Bodo, O.F.M. offers a "Simple Way" to reflect, pray, write, and take action toward a more spiritual way of daily living. The pocket-sized book based on the words of St. Francis is ideal for individuals and small groups. Bodo has divided the 100-plus entries into five themes: a simple way to love God, to live, to love one's neighbor, to pray, to love God's creatures. Each meditation consists of words and stories from Francis' own writing, brief commentary from Bodo, a personal question, and space for a "Today I will" statement.

A meditation on the importance of silence from The Simple Way to Prayer section is a good example. The opening quote praises quiet and meditation as ways to combat preoccupation and dissipation. Bodo writes of Francis' practice of sending brothers out to pray in pairs. They alternated between two roles: the "son" in solitude and the "mother" who protected his silence and brought him food and other necessities at certain intervals. The question is about the value I place on solitude and silence and who protects it for me.

The section on loving God's creatures contains a meditation on tilling and preserving the earth, which is especially meaningful today. "If the natural world only serves our need to dominate instead of our need to name and cherish, then one of God's first purposes in creating us is dismissed," writes Bodo. He then quotes Genesis 2:15, the passage in which God places Adam, in the garden of Eden "to till it and keep it." The question relates to my efforts to till and preserve the earth.
