Pages: 224
Description: I need this type of books so badly. I am reading it slowly taking it all in. Today I am up to page 20 since English is my second language. I kept saying, yes, yes, to almost everything she said. Here are some things I liked in her book:

-The spirituality we develop affects the way we image God.

-The Rule of Benedict is not a set of spiritual exercises and not a set of proscriptions and not a set of devotions and not a set of disciplines. It is simply a plan of life, a set of principles that is clearly meant to be nearer to the original meaning of the Latin word regula, or guide, than to the concept Lex, or law……direction is what we need (p. 7).

– Prayer in Benedictine spirituality is not an interruption of our busy lives nor is it a higher act. p. 17

– The fact is that the way Satan gets to the holy person may be through sanctity. “The wicked zeal”, Benedict calls it, which leads to separation from God” (RB 72: 1). Even sanctity, we’re being warned, can become a barrier to growth. p. 17.
This was really beautiful. She is speaking directly from the Lord to my heart. I need that kind of voice.
