Jesus never promised that we would be free of difficulties in this life, that neither suffering nor hardship would cause us pain. What he did promise was to be with us no matter the situation "even to the end of the age."
Sacred Space: A Little Book of Encouragement offers seventy short chapters to comfort us with God's presence in the midst of life's challenges and to remind us that Jesus journeys with us step-by-step. Each entry-which includes a Gospel reading, a short reflection, and a prayer-is given a descriptive title so that readers can easily find the encouragement they need depending on their situation at the time.
Lovingly compiled by Vinita Hampton Wright using select material from Sacred Space (the online prayer site that serves millions of spiritual pilgrims), this inviting and reassuring little book gently reminds us of the compassion, care, and calm that God provides in our moments of need.
