Anawim Way—Liturgical Meditations

The Anawim Community publishes a periodical booklet of liturgical meditations to help people make use of the scripture readings from the Mass as the basis for their daily prayer. Many people also use them for Lectio Divina during group reflection workshops. At St Anthony’s we begin all our Parish Meetings using the Anawim Way as part of our Lectio Divina.

What makes the Anawim Way a valuable guide for pondering the daily scripture readings is that each day’s readings are followed by a meditation which relates directly to the readings and applies them to our daily lives.

The meditations and the reflection questions
help us do what our Blessed Mother Mary does, ponder the mysteries of Christ in our hearts
(cf. Luke 2:19, 51).

As we are guided to pray from within the heart of the Church, the Church’s official prayer becomes our personal prayer.


Features of the Anawim Way are:

  • Follows the Church’s daily liturgical calendar
  • Daily scripture readings from the Mass
  • In-depth meditations on the readings; plus reflection questions
  • Information on the Saint of the day
  • Used by bishops, priests, religious, and lay people in many countries
  • Eight issues per year

We invite you to make Pondering the Word the Anawim Way a part of your prayer life.
