    The Flowing Grace of Now: Encountering Wisdom through the Weeks of the Year

    For more than twenty-five years, Sr. Macrina Wiederkehr has authored such bestselling books on Catholic spirituality as Seven Sacred Pauses and A Tree Full of Angels. In The Flowing Grace of Now, her first book in almost a decade, Wiederkehr offers weekly reflections that reveal the spiritual teachers at work in your life, inviting you to listen to these teachers and learn from their wisdom. There is an old proverb that says, 'When the student is ready the teacher will arrive.' I think I have been ready for a long time, yet perhaps I have spent too much time looking for the perfect teacher rather than seeing the teachers that arrive in unexpected ways.' With these words, retreat guide and author Sr. Macrina Wiederkehr begins The Flowing Grace of Now, a year-long companion that ushers you into the presence of teachers already at work in your life; teachers intent on helping you deepen your faith. These teachers are not necessarily saints, writers, or theologians, but rather ordinary people, events, and experiences whose presence already permeates your life. These include:
    • biblical characters,
    • day and night,
    • silence,
    • the virtues, and
    • joy in another person's good fortune.
    These, Wiederkehr suggests, are the kind of teachers who are the result of the flow of grace in your life. She encourages you to become aware of how they are at work in you and what you might learn from them. Each reflection begins with a scripture text leading you into the spirit of the week.  A brief meditation on this scripture serves as a catalyst for the Word to take root in your heart and a closing prayer sums up the week. A teacher is suggested for you. The final quotation from a spiritual writer contains the spirit of your teacher and can assist you in embracing the wisdom of that teacher. Using this book as a year-long weekly guide can be an enriching opportunity to deepen and transform your faith life.

    A Tree Full of Angels

    The Modern Catholic Classic that Helps You See the Sacred in Everyday Life I see the first rays of  sunlight shimmering through a maple tree. And then in a twinkling I'm certain. I am standing before a tree full of angels dazzling me with their glorious presence. - From A Tree Full of Angels "A personalized invitation to stop, look and listen for God in the here and now... (Wiederkehr) wants us to gather up the crumbs, the little things in our lives, and realise they have the makings of a banquet". Abbot Jerome Kodell, OSB, Subiaco Abbey, Arkansas "Challenges us to remember the people in our past with a love that knows we will meet again, and look forward to the future with hope that God who so feeds us today has sent us an even greater banquet". Reverend Nicholas Ayo, University of Notre Dame Macrina Wiederkehr, OSB, is a member of St. Scholastica Monastery in Fort Smith, Arkansas. She directs retreats and workshops throughout the United States and is the author of The Song of the Seed and Seasons of Your Heart.
