Sometimes on life's long road it is helpful to pause and reflect on the journey we are making. Macrina Wiederkehr encourages us to reflect on our memories, both joyous and painful, so that we can move into the future with new wisdom and strength. In this forty-day pilgrimage, Wiederkehr guides us to let go of bitterness and blame and to prayerfully, simply behold our lives. She helps us to open the door of memory and journey again with Jesus down our life's path. From the moment of our conception, through the joys and pains of childhood and adolescence, and on to the quest for love and the fullness of life in adulthood, she leads us to recognize the ever present, loving touch of God. Behold Your Life is a wonderful resource for a healing retreat-during Lent or whenever the Spirit of God urges us to embrace our memories and discover the goodness hidden in our wounds.


"A transformational journey."

"Behold Your Life is designed to be a transformational journey — each day's material contains a passage from scripture, a guided meditation on your memory for the day, and a prayer." (Read the entire review here).
