A Tree Full of Angels: Seeing the Holy in the Ordinary has been one of my most popular books. Much of this book I wrote on my sabbatical hermitage in the Sonora desert. Much of this book has been gleaned from my prayer journal. When you look closely at A Tree Full of Angels you may notice that it takes the ancient practice of lectio divina expanding it to include praying with life-experiences and creation as well as with Scripture. It is really Lectio Divina with LIFE. The heart of this book is the story of the Canaanite woman who reminded Jesus that even the dogs get the crumbs that fall from the table. In this sense it is a strong reminder that nothing in life is wasted. There is no such thing as left-overs. All can be blessed and transformed at the altar of daily life.
