This book of daily devotions is intended as an aid to anyone interested in making contemplation/meditation a part of daily life. Each reflection, based on a passage from Scripture and, occasionally, on the liturgical calendar of Byzantine-Rite Christianity, is brief, so that it can be fit into a busy schedule. The reflections are meant to be read only one per day, perhaps with one's morning-coffee, on the train-ride to work, or whenever one has five minutes. The brief daily reflection is also meant to be combined with some daily prayer and a bit of daily self-examination. That's the eay these reflections were written, - just one a day, throughout the course of one very busy year in Vienna, Austria.
The Scriptural passages used here are based on the New Revised Standard Version, sometimes modified by the author according to her reading of the Greek text, and Old-Testament passages are Translated based on the Septuagint.
