Praise for the Print Edition

I am deeply moved by this work. There is a beauty in this book which draws the reader into intimate friendships with the saints and opens one to the Holy Spirit’s presence, increasing our desire for nuptial union. This book, with its synthesis of the saints’ teaching, is an extraordinary gift to the Church for the work of the new evangelization.

—Fr. John Horn, SJ, co-founder of the Institute for Priestly Formation, Creighton University, Omaha, NE

Many Catholics leave the church and seek refuge in eastern religions and in cult movements because they are seeking a spirituality and prayer of greater depth than they find in their own tradition. But they need not seek elsewhere. Ralph Martin opens up the sources of the rich, Catholic, mystical tradition and makes it accessible to all, clergy and laity alike.

—Fr. Kilian McDonnell, OSB, founder and president of the Institute for Ecumenical and Cultural Research, St. John’s University, Collegeville, MN

This reliable and challenging synthesis, which is obviously the fruit of lots of prayerful reflection and study, abounds in wisdom, offers practical guidance, and deserves to be a classic.

—Fr. Patrick Collins, CM, lecturer in spirituality, All Hallows College, Dublin, Ireland

Ralph Martin transmits in an orderly and attractive manner the consensus teaching of some of the great representatives of the Western spiritual tradition. I would recommend this book particularly to young couples who wish to come to know God more deeply and allow him, with the help of genuine spiritual masters, to work a deep transformation in their lives, one that builds their family and endures for eternity.

—Fr. Francis Martin, SSD, Adam Cardinal Maida Chair in Sacred Scripture, Sacred Heart Major Seminary, Detroit, MI
