A new monthly publication from the Liturgical Press (a service of the Benedictine monks of St. John’s Abbey, of which I am an oblate): Give Us This Day that I thought our blog readers and/or contributors might be interested in.

The idea is to provide resources to help connect the liturgy to daily life.  Here’s how they describe it:

A new, personal prayer periodical from Liturgical Press-a trusted publisher of liturgy, Scripture, and spirituality founded by the Benedictines of Saint John’s Abbey in 1926.

Deeply rooted in the Catholic tradition, Give Us This DayTM is about prayer-praying daily, praying well, praying with confidence.

Give Us This DayTM supports your desire to establish prayer as a part of your life, enhancing your existing practices and deepening your encounter with God by providing:

  • A practical approach to daily prayer
  • Prayers and readings for daily Mass
  • Daily prayer, Morning and Evening
  • A reflection on the Scriptures for each day

They have a great editorial board lined up as well, including: Kathleen Norris, James Martin, bishop Morneau, Irene Nowell, Timothy Radcliffe, and Ronald Rolheiser.
