By A Holy Wonder
Behold is a reflection journal that will spark your sense of wonder and teach little ways to care for our creation. As a principle of Catholic social teaching, care of creation compels us to become good stewards. Through contemplation, prayer, and action, this monthly year-long journal lets you wonder with the saints while discovering simple ways to be a good steward of creation.
It opens each month with words from a saint that capture his or her sense of wonder of creation. Each month also contains a contemplation section, a prayer, and suggested actions connected to wonder and stewardship. The contemplation section encourages deep reflection through thought-provoking questions, allows you to practice the art of writing and wondering, and offers space to explore new ideas. Suggested readings give you a place to start learning more about Catholic social teaching.
What’s unique about this journal?
This journal offers a new way of seeing and noticing creation so that acts of stewardship draw from appreciation of the good and love of God and neighbor. This new way of seeing is what Saint John Paul II called an ecological conversion.
Who is it for?
This journal is perfect for anyone 18 years and older. Keep one for yourself. Give a few as gifts to friends and family. Pursue wonder together.
The format allows you to work through it by yourself or in a group of just about any size. A group can read it ahead of time and meet once per month to discuss the contemplation question and plan to take part in the suggested actions together.
