New Seeds of Contemplation
New Directions, 1961 - 297 ページ
This book could have been written by any monk: it expresses the preoccupations that are more or less in the minds of all contemplatives -- allowing for differences of temperament and personality. It has no other end or ideal in view thanwhat should be the ordinary fulfillment of the Christian life of grace, and therefore everything that is said here can be applied to anyone, not only in the monastery but also in the world.
