This site offers daily meditations which can be sent to you daily by email and offers you reflections and sermon offered by the members of the Society. These daily meditations are short, to the point, and very poignant. The words can often grab our heart in a profound way and then continue to meet us in our times of reflection throughout the day. The SSJE is an Episcopal Religious Order for men located in Cambridge, MA.

Here’s an example:

Intercede When we pray, as our Rule puts it, we are not calling down a divine presence to come to the place where we have seen a need, for the Christ who fills all things is already in that place. Christ is already there in grace and mercy beside those in greatest need – sharing their sorrows. In our prayers we are willing to take on the suffering of others, and to join God in God’s compassionate presence.
