Sacred Reading: The 2019 Guide to Daily Prayer provides a prayerful and intimate exploration of the daily gospel readings, illuminating each passage through a simple, six-step process that draws you into a personal encounter with Christ. Unlike other prayer books using the traditional spiritual devotion of lectio divina, this guide includes the Pope’s monthly prayer intentions, allowing you to participate in the global life of the Church while strengthening your own faith.

This inviting annual prayer book from the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network—an international ecclesial ministry served by the Jesuits—breaks open the daily gospel readings with a fresh take on the traditional spiritual devotion lectio divina (sacred reading) and incorporates the Pope’s monthly prayer intentions for groups across the globe. A straightforward yet deeply prayerful approach to the ancient practice of lectio divina will help you develop a sense of the universal Church in prayer for persecuted Christians, national leaders, the elderly, and those in need.

With Sacred Reading, you will be guided to

  • know God is present;
  • read the gospel;
  • notice what you think and feel;
  • pray as you are led for yourself and others;
  • listen to God; and
  • ask him how to show you how to live each day.

Beginning with Advent and continuing through the entire liturgical year, this book is a practical resource for anyone who is interested in a deeper prayer life or is seeking a new approach to both praying and living the gospel.
