Sacred Space

This site Sacred Space is a beautiful source of prayer and spiritual energy. The details are below, and if you only have a few minutes of “space” in your day, it could not be better spent.

I have had the pleasure of some email exchanges with Father Gerry Bourke, S.J. who was the editor of this ministry for many years.


Sacred Space is a work of the Irish Province of the Society of Jesus. It originated in the offices of the Jesuit Communication Centre in Ireland in 1999. Being a ministry of the Irish Jesuits, it is inspired by the spirituality of Saint Ignatius of Loyola (Ignatian spirituality).

Sacred Space calendar

Sacred Space ordinarily follows the scripture sequence of the Revised Common Lectionary. Adaptations are made to the Irish calendar to acknowledge the international readership of the site.

  1. Do you post it regularly on this site that can be used as a daily prayer guide? It’d be great if I can receive it by email inasmuch as I cannot get a hard copy of it now.

    I lost the copy I got last year from the Jesuit Communications Center of the Philippine Province of the Society of Jesus. I’m now in the US and hard pressed to get one.

    Many thanks for your kind attention.
