  • Each meditation in this volume reflects what the author calls "the spiritual work of our time" - cultivating grateful living, the key to joy. The selections explore the broad range of issues that have been at the core of a lifetime of meditation and teaching. Throughout each of these meditations, Steindl-Rast seeks to nourish the mystic within the reader and to reveal the sacred core at the heart of each religious faith, no matter what its flaws. Themes include Spirituality as Common Sense, The Monk in Us, Art and the Sacred, Sacramental Life, Views of the Cosmos, The Mystical Core of Religion, Learning to Die, The Monks Way, The House of Hope, The Price of Peace, and A New Reason for Gratitude.
