Overview
In these pages, Fr. Pennington invites readers, in a deeply personal way, to go deeper and deeper toward the Center where the Word of God speaks, where the experience of Gods healing love and real prayer take place. Thence comes transformation and a different world emerges, one which reflects a true self that sees things as God sees them. This selection of insights satisfies the deepest human longing, especially in a time marked by loneliness, stress and violence, filled with deceptive mirages, neversatisfying achievements, and heartbreaking disappointments. Fr. Pennington affirms that beyond the shallow values of the everyday world lies true meaning which makes life fulfilling, ecstatic and liberating.M. Basil Pennington, O.C.S.O. (19312005), a monk at St. Josephs Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts was renowned for his work on centering prayer and on lectio divina, the ancient practice of praying the Scriptures. He was also recognized for his broad and dedicated religious search that led him to cross lines that divide denominations and different spiritual traditions. Indeed, he counted among his many friends rabbis from New York, Eastern Orthodox monks from Mount Athos and Hindu spiritual masters from India. With all of them, Christians as well as those who profess other faiths, he sought to establish a frank dialogue that recognizes and respects the value of monasticism.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An ideal giftbook for Christians  Jun 10, 2009

Recommended resource for individuals and groups  Apr 3, 2009
Editor Jean Maalouf presents 99 quotations from the works of Fr. Pennington as an invitation "to go deeper and deeper toward the Center where the Word of God speaks to us, where we experience God's healing love, and where real prayer takes place." Pennington, a Trappist monk and priest, was a leading Roman Catholic spiritual writer, speaker, and teacher. Much of his work was focused on centering prayer and lectio divina (praying with Scripture).

The first "saying" is a basic description of centering prayer: "We are willing to let go of everything and simply be to Jesus, with Jesus, wherever he leads." Although many of the remaining quotations address the history and fruits of centering prayer, Pennington places it in a program of praying that includes communal and liturgical prayer, shared scripture, the rosary and stations, and "cries for help and words of thanks." He also emphasizes the importance of actions, "living according to (God's) commandments and not according to the customs and dictates of a hypocritical society."

This pocket-sized hard cover, like the others in the 99 Sayings series, is an ideal gift for self and others. It would also be a useful resource for small group facilitators and retreat leaders.
