About this collection:

This is an archive of the Weekly Guides written to assist you in daily prayer. These are not specific meditations, and they don't replace the Daily Reflections. This is an aid to help each of us listen to the movements of the scriptures for a whole week and to name some desires within us that we can bring to the Lord. This will help let those desires interact with the concrete events of our day.

Part of each weekly guide will be to scan the readings for the week, to make it easier to see the week as a whole. The second part will to offer some help in naming possible desires that will shape our relationship with the Lord throughout the week.

May our Lord bless us all as we grow in finding intimacy with God in our everyday lives.
