Finding God in the Mess: Meditations for Mindful Living

Modern lives can be very busy, saturated with technology and media.  However, it is the time out and the ability to look back and understand life events that bring about deeper, more satisfying living.

Meditation and mindfulness are very useful tools to help calm us in these stressful times. With mental health issues, specifically anxiety, on the rise, this book can show you how to meditate and ask for God’s help.

The spirituality of St Ignatius teaches us that God holds us close, loves us and desires the best for us. It is a solid foundation that we can build our lives on, an anchor in the storms of life, and it can bring us through even the darkest hours. These meditations can be used by individuals or parish groups as a daily prayer source and discussion topic. A perfect gift for someone inviting another to consider ‘God in all things”.
