Benedictine monastic spirituality has emerged as an antidote to the spiritual and cultural challenges facing people of faith today. In this book, the author focuses specifically on GRACE, and the benevolence of God as it expresses itself in many different ways along our spiritual journey. What is a person likely to experience when beginning to give up him or herself conscientiously to the spiritual journey? In this beautiful guide, gradually, we come to realize that everything that happens in our lives is somehow the gift of our loving Father.
Every journey is ultimately individual. As Casey explains, what you hear within your own spirit is more significant than what he can say. But his aim is to help you listen to the voice of God in your heart.
About the Author
Michael Casey, OCSO, has been a monk of Tarrawarra Abbey, Australia, since 1960. After completing a degree in Scripture at Leuven, he received his doctorate from Melbourne College of Divinity for a study of desire for God in the writings of Bernard of Clairvaux. For the past decades he has been engaged in exploring different aspects of monastic spirituality, writing, and giving conferences throughout the English-speaking monastic world.
“I find Michael Casey to be our present-day Merton. Grace reveals why Fr. Michael is such a beloved spiritual mentor for so many. He weaves diverse sources into his own pondering, with wisdom gained from decades of living monastic life. He has much to offer to anyone who yearns for a down-to-earth relationship with God. A gentle, spiritual master—journey with him!” —Laura Swan, author of The Forgotten Desert Mothers and The Wisdom of the Beguines
