Elizabeth of the Trinity: A Life of Praise to God - Sr. Giovanna della Croce
By Sr. Giovanna della Croce, OCD
This short book is a powerful introduction to the spiritual wisdom & teachings of one of the Church’s newest saints: Elizabeth of the Trinity.
There was nothing extraordinary in Elizabeth of the Trinity’s life. There were no ecstasies. She didn’t work miracles. She didn’t communicate heavenly messages through visions or words she heard. Instead, she presented a message to modern man through her own life of fidelity, showing us that the true road to contemplative prayer is not an ascent to grasp God, but a descent into the depths of one’s heart.
In our noisy culture, Elizabeth of the Trinity reminds us of God’s power to establish in us a profound and peaceful stillness. She reminds us that that the Trinity is our home, and that God has created us in order to be united to Christ.
