“Sacred Space” is a sequel to my first book of Poems: “Musings”
Most, if not all of the poems in this new book were written over the past year right here at our monastery in Wappingers Falls, NY. They are the direct results of days of prayer, Annual Retreat, various feasts of the Church year or even more importantly the ordinary events of daily life in the midst of my sisters living in community. Every flutter of a bird, the call of the turkey on the lookout for a mate, the search of the deer for its daily sustenance, as well as the crisp smell of a freshly fallen rain, the seasonal snowfall with its beauty and its inconveniences, are reminders of the wonderful presence of God in all of creation. I hope reverence and awe will accompany you in the journey through this little book. May God bless you!
