Taken from her letters and writings, this books offers twenty-two small reflections on prayer in the daily life. Really enjoyed this book, the chance to read her writings from different perspectives, personal reflections, letters to friends, advice to her sister Carmelites. A wonderful collection of thoughtful, practical advice of how to persevere in prayer, in word and in action. The format also allows the reader to open the book to any reflection at anytime like a seeker going to elder in the tradition of the Desert Fathers & Mothers and asking 'for a word'. Will definitely be returning to this book and am planning to seek out others from the Classic Wisdom series.
