Sacred Space: The Prayer Book 2012 is the annual prayer book based on the successful prayer website, inaugurated by the Irish Jesuits. The site logs nearly six million visitors per year, and is translated into twenty languages with people praying at the site at the rate of one person every twenty seconds.

Successfully published as a year-long prayer aid for eight years running, Sacred Space: The Prayer Book 2012 continues to draw an increasing number of readers, for whom it serves as a complement to the hugely popular website. Using the simple six-step method first developed by St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, this new edition provides daily readings and prayer starters. It is ideal for people on the go who want to grab a few moments to read, reflect, and pray in the midst of their busy days. Regular visitors to the website will appreciate this book as a way to fill in for those times when the website is out of reach, and as a gift to introduce their friends to this wonderful prayer method.


"Profound meditations."

"Inspired by one of the most successful spirituality websites around (and for good reason), Sacred Space offers readers short but profound meditations on the daily scriptures. Friendly, concise, and consistently thought provoking, these books are perfect for anyone who would like to pray more and be more connected to God, but may feel too busy to do so. In other words, everyone!"

Rev. James Martin, S.J., Author of My Life with the Saints

"Very helpful."

"The website Sacred Space has been helping millions to pray for some years. Now Ave Maria Press makes these very helpful and easily usable prayer-helps available in handsome and accessible form, including pocket-sized booklets for the Advent-Christmas and Lenten seasons. What a great service to God’s people! I hope millions more will buy the books. God is being well served."

Rev. William A. Barry, S.J., Author of Paying Attention to God

"Profound, and effective."

"I don't know any other guides to prayer that are so direct, profound, and effective. It's no wonder that right around the world they have proved extraordinarily helpful in leading busy people to stay in touch with the presence of God."

Rev. Gerald O’Collins, S.J., Author of Jesus: A Portrait

"A gem."

"Sacred Space has provided countless people with a clear and concise resource to pray alone—any time and anywhere—and yet consciously united with numerous others worldwide. This timely unassuming aid to daily prayer is a gem."

Rev. Peter van Breemen, S.J.
