Description

"If you have an eye for it, the world itself is a sacrament."—St. Augustine

Immersed in the Sacred is an invitation to find the holy in the people, places, activities, and objects that fill our days. Through personal reflections on her own 'ordinary' life, Kathy Coffey encourages each of us to explore our lives and to find the sacred that surrounds us. Whether it's a beautiful mountain view or a simple hotel room, every place can be a doorway to the sacred. And every activity can be a vehicle for grace, whether it's a shared meal with family or friends or huffing and puffing our way through an aerobics class. While respecting the sacraments celebrated in church, how do we also find the holy in the office, home, garage, or shop? Immersed in the Sacred shows us.

Praise

"Elegant, earthy."

"A striking example in itself of a "small s" sacrament, this elegant, earthy book immerses us in the sacred."

Patricia Livingston, Author of This Blessed Mess

"Delicious invitation to taste divinity."

"How enriching it is to find a book that brings God close enough to touch yet also respects the mystery inherent in divinity. Kathy Coffey's is just such a book. She offers keen descriptive enticements luring the reader into earthy realities where the sacred abounds. Every page is a delicious invitation to taste divinity more fully and never leave one's daily life in doing so. This is a fine book that will surely feed anyone who is hungry for God."

Joyce Rupp, Author of Open the Door

"Eloquently helps us find the sacred everywhere."

"If spirituality means opening one's mind, body, and heart to the holy in the everyday, and I certainly think it does, then Kathy Coffey eloquently helps us find the sacred everywhere and in everyone."

Gaynell Bordes Cronin, Author of The Blessing Candles
