As we look toward Lent and Easter, I am happy to recommend a new book by Sarah Arthur, At the Still Point. In this lovely book, the author has compiled selections from Holy Scripture, along with works from 20th century writers to give her reader something new each day. When you are taken unawares in your meditations by a line of poetry from Christina Rosetti or a scene set in a novel by John Irving, Arthur offers new language in various contexts to provoke and to nudge readers toward a quiet moment with God. As we look forward to Jesus rising from his ultimate sacrifice to let us follow him on the road home, we can find a poet, a novelist, an essayist, or a musician to light the path. Enjoy this generous new book in the spirit of love, joy, and thanksgiving. —Novice Mary Cathryne Vanek, St. Placid Priory
