A Year of Daily Offerings is a prayerful 366-day experience immersed in the lives of the saints, the rhythm of the Church calendar, and the stories of ordinary people who lived the Eucharist in their daily lives. It will help you reorder not just your devotional life, but the entire way of looking at your day.
This thoughtful, yearlong book of morning meditations from Rev. James Kubicki, S.J.—national director of the Apostleship of Prayer and bestselling author of A Heart on Fire—provides a rich array of reflections based on Ignatian spirituality that invite you to begin each day with a sincere offering of your life to God.
Combining a contemporary tone with a strong Biblical understanding, Fr. Kubicki shows you how to live your Eucharistic offering each day. He provides a fresh perspective on the promise of connecting with God through the practice of morning prayer by using prayers of the saints, a word to carry throughout the day, and an evening reflection to reflect on the day you offered to God.`

Lots of us mumble a sleepy 'morning offering' prayer as we stumble out of bed. That's a good beginning--but how about taking it to the next level? Each of Fr. Kubicki's daily meditations is followed by a unique prayer of self-offering for each day of the year. These will help us to grasp what a great gift and glory it is to unite our daily ups and downs to the perfect sacrifice of Jesus. Even the busiest person could build a solid prayer life with this book.
