Product Description

We all hurt in various ways---pain from childhood, unspoken fears, memories that remind us of loss---but Anthony Delisi, a Trappist chaplain, teacher, and retreat leader for nearly sixty years, shows us how to bring all of these to God as we learn to pray "in the cellar." This engaging guide to contemplative prayer will take you through the depths of what it really means to follow Jesus's instructions for prayer: "When you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret."

Fr. Delisi encourages us to accept Jesus' invitation to enter our interior cellar and in the darkness let our fears come to the surface. Along the way, he also shares his own experiences and reflections on his own journey toward discovering God's deepest healing, and love. This inviting and helpful book is for all of us who have had trouble praying because memories, family, loves, concerns---life!---gets in the way.

Anthony Delisi, O.C.S.O., has been publishing his warm reflections on the spiritual life for decades from his monastery near Atlanta. He entered Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Monastery in Conyers, Georgia in 1948, and is the founder of the Lay Cistercian movement, aimed at bringing monastic spirituality into the lives of interested laypeople around the world.
