Macrina Wiedekehr brings the reader to the seven sacred pauses of the day with her modern focus on the Prayer of the Hours. In Seven Sacred Pauses she shares the wisdom she has gained in her lifelong Benedictine tradition of praying 7 times a day sometimes called the Prayer of the Hours. If you are looking for a way to pray more mindfully throughout the day, Seven Sacred Pauses will be a guide and help. Dividing the day into seven sections, Wiedekehr provides meditations, prayers and poetry to help the reader spend time in prayerful communication with God. Each section in Seven Sacred Pauses also includes antiphons or very short prayers which can be repeated during the day until you come back for the next holy hour. The nice variety of prayers, psalms and sayings offered in Seven Sacred Pauses allows you to choose the particular reading you feel most attracted to on any given day. At the end of Seven Sacred Pauses you will find the Litany of the Hours and chants which may be used to further aid in praying throughout the day. In providing the reader with reflections on the spirit of the ancient Prayer of the Hours, the author opens the reader up being mindful of the presence of the Sacred in our lives all day long.
