By Anthony Lilles
This book is especially for those who want to deepen their life of prayer. The type of prayer Anthony Lilles describes beholds the wonder of Christ's living but hidden presence in one's highest thoughts and most noble aspirations as well as in one's instinctual urges and deepest longings. The ecstasy of this kind of prayer extends beyond even the vast unexplored horizons of the human heart and opens to an immensity of such excessive mercy that all else is forgotten -- and only love remains.
The whole world needs this love: it is the secret garden, the hidden mountain, the inexhaustible riches only prayer knows and an excess of grace only prayer can make known. This is why St. John Paul II told the Church not to be afraid to open wide the doors of our hearts to Christ, and it is why he told the world's young people to be proud to proclaim the Gospel of the Lord. For those who want to faithfully open their hearts to the Lord, this book will encourage you.
This is a wonderful book for those in all stages of the spirirtual life, full of practical advice.
