Product Description

In this simple but profoundly insightful book we find the richness of vision of a contemplative nun whose message counteracts the tendency of so much modern writing about the spiritual life. Sr. Burrows entices us to dig more deeply as she opens her work with these arresting words.

"Almost always when we talk about prayer we are thinking of something we do and, from that standpoint, questions, problems, confusion, discouragement, illusions multiply. For me, it is of fundamental importance to correct this view. Our Christian knowledge assures us that prayer is essentially what God does, how God addresses us, looks at us. It is not primarily something we are doing to God, something we are giving to God but what God is doing for us. And what God is doing for us is giving us the divine Self in love."
