Drawn from the wildly popular Jesuit website sacredspace.ie and the Sacred Spacebook series, this useful spiritual guide provides short prayers grounded in Ignatian spirituality and crafted specially for the Advent and Christmas season.
Sacred Space for Advent and the Christmas Season 2013-2014 continues to draw an increasing number of readers for whom it serves as a complement to the hugely popular website sacredspace.ie. Inexpensive, accessible, and portable, it offers people a seasonal opportunity to discover the richness of the distinctive prayer method that has made Sacred Space so beloved around the world. Using the simple six-step method first developed by St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, the booklet provides the same daily readings and prayer starters along with the weekly Advent themes found in the larger book.
Inaugurated in 1999 for Lent by Alan McGuckian, SJ, and Peter Scally, SJ, and managed today by Piaras Jackson, SJ, the website sacredspace.ie today logs nearly six million visitors per year. The site is translated into twenty languages and people pray there at the rate of one person every twenty seconds
