God is always there, always waiting for our invitation to come in. Yet sometimes we need help hearing the knock at the door, putting some time aside, or beginning the conversation. In this collection of scriptural reflections and prayers, Joyce Rupp offers us the encouragement we so often require to stop and pray. Her thoughtful, perceptive reflections on scripture guide us as we open our hearts and ponder the meaning of God’s word in our lives. And her poetic personal prayers help us find words for the longings in our hearts.

Inviting God In is organized according to the seasons of the church year, from Advent and Christmas, to Lent and Easter, and on through the days of Ordinary Time and particular festivals. Each entry is just one page long, beginning with a verse from scripture followed by a reflection and a prayer. The book begins with an insightful reflection on prayer as “God’s Gift to Us,” reminding us of those basic truths about prayer that are sometimes easy to forget. One of our best-loved spiritual writers, Joyce Rupp once again sets just the right tone to invite us to pray.

With 250,000 copies sold, this new edition of Joyce Rupp’s most popular book offers a fresh opportunity for readers to reflect, ritualize, and reorient themselves as they navigate life’s inevitable changes.

Everyone has unique goodbyes—times of losing someone or something that has given life meaning and value. With the touch of a poet, Joyce Rupp offers her wisdom on “these experiences of leaving behind and moving on, the stories of union and separation that are written in all our hearts.” Praying Our Goodbyes, Rupp says, is about the spirituality of change.

It is a book for anyone who has experienced loss, whether a job change, the end of a relationship, the death of a loved one, a financial struggle, a mid-life crisis, or an extended illness. It is designed to help readers reflect, ritualize, and re-orient themselves—to help heal the hurts caused by goodbyes and the anxieties encountered when one season of life ends and another begins.

Joyce Rupp is one of the best Christian spiritual guides writing today.

—Rev. James Martin, S.J., author of My Life with the Saints

The Circle of Life: The Heart's Journey Through the Seasons

  • Author: Joyce Rupp
  • Publisher: Ave Maria Press
  • Publication Date: 2005
  • Pages: 288

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

We long for connections in the midst of disconnected lives—connections to ourselves, to others, to the world we live in. Most of all we yearn to connect with the sacred. In The Circle of Life Joyce Rupp and Macrina Wiederkehr invite us to listen carefully and closely to the wisdom of each season. Using reflections, poems, prayers, and meditations, they explore the relationship between the seasons of the earth and the seasons of our lives. The Circle of Life encourages readers to connect their experience of the unfolding seasons with inner spiritual growth and movement, and to know that the presence of God is within and around us all.

In this wonderful devotional resource, [Rupp and Wiederkehr] have brought their talents and energy together to produce an illuminating paperback on the link between the external rhythms of the four seasons and the internal movements of the soul. For them, each season is a stepping stone in a great circle of life.... Our appreciation of this devotional work is enhanced by the wonder-inducing illustrations by Mary Southard; her enchantment with the Creation shines through her art. The Circle of Life is the perfect resource for families as well as congregational groups of all types.
