  • We need evocative words and compelling images to help us break out, and break through to the Divine. Well, here are some very good ones!
    Richard Rohr, O.F.M., founder, Center for Action and Contemplation and author of "From Wild Man to Wise Man: Reflections on Male Spirituality"
  • This lively book of poetry, prayers, and paintings will engage your heart and open your spiritual senses. It invites you into an intimacy with Jesus that is real, earthy, and vulnerable. Clarence’s candor and sincerity inspire a desire to enter into a closer relationship with God that is all-consuming, freeing, and life-giving.
    Maureen Conroy, R.S.M., co-director of the Upper Room Spiritual Center and author of "Experiencing God’s Tremendous Love: Entering into Relational Prayer"
  • "Of all the ways God seeps out through my life…" leads into one of Clarence Heller’s poems. Everyday Sacred is one of those ways. Earthy and alive in imagery, his poetic writing seduces the reader into desiring a relationship with God as rich and sensual as the author’s. Not to be read cursorily, each poem offers a mirrored moment in which to catch the reflection of one’s own deepest longing.
    Marian Cowan, C.S.J., spiritual life consultant, writer, lecturer, and artist
  • Everyday Sacred allows us to uncover the divine presence shining through our various worlds. These intimate poetic reflections and vibrant paintings take us through the everyday areas of nature, home, family, Jesus, communion, church, and the present moment, letting God invite us to wonder and to love. I strongly recommend savoring slowly the many marvelously rich nourishments here that each person can make his or her own.
    David L. Fleming. S.J., author of "Draw Me Into Your Friendship: A Literal Translation and a Contemporary Reading of the Spiritual Exercises" and "What Is Ignatian Spirituality?"
